With this season I broke one of the biggest personal barriers, the sub 6 minute mile. I’ve changed quite a few things since last year and I’ve improve my 5K time and overall distance. My current PR for 1 mile stands at 5:17. I’m looking to improve that and hopefully run my first sub 5 minute mile.
Things I have done (listed in order of how effective they have been):
- form – pose running
- Increase turnover rate
- Intervals on treadmill
- Hill work/Repeats
- Foam roller at night
- Shoe change for different distances
- Extended length of trail running on weekends
- More upper body work to strengthen core.
