Best Ways to Increase Your Running Speed

Another part in a skill self-improvement series. Discover new ways and tips to try out to improve productivity, running skills and save time.

1. Interval Training

Intervals

Interval training consists of high to low-intensity exercising. Starting off with a light jog and then going for high-speed runs helps build speed and endurance; which will over time increase your speed. [1]

2. Wear Lighter Shoes

Lighter shoes

If your shoes are heavy, then they might hinder you from running at your top speed. Trade them in for a lighter pair of shoes which will, in turn, allow you to have better stride and better speed.

3. Maintaining Good Running Form

Maintaining good form helps you maintain a speed to run at as well as the way you run. [2]. When running, look forwards with a tall, relaxed posture and allow your arms to swing freely. When striking the ground with your feet, avoid hitting it heel first, aim for striking the ground with the middle of your foot.

4. Eat Appropriately

Proper diet

Try to get lots of carbohydrates and proteins in your meals as they are going to be the fuel you need for your runs. Don’t forget to drink lots of water to stay hydrated as well.

5. Strength Training

Strength training

Building up muscles help you avoid injuries that hinder your progress but also allows you to start running faster. Exercises like squats, push-ups, skipping and planks will help you with building your muscles. Building a strong core is also important for overusing muscles such as pushing and pulling forward your legs.[2]

Before closing off, it is important to have a strong mindset and believe you can push your limits as it will not be easy running outside your comfort zone. The longer you endure the more progress you will see.
