Want to know how to run faster? Well it’s quite a simple process. You need to change the way you train. Whilst you should be trying to increase the speeds you run at to a certain degree, there are many more efficient ways of increasing speed.
In order to learn how to run faster it is important to develop both strength and endurance in to the legs, so to do this you must change your training so that you start to do some shorter but faster runs and cutting down a little on the distances that you run each week.
Studies done on a group of regular runners in a Danish university proved that a reduction in mileage and the addition of a number of shorter sprints gave the subjects an overall improvement in the speeds they ran at. The test runners were monitored against another group of experienced runners that continued to run longer distances at a slightly faster pace.
