Increases endurance, improves leg strength and increases the time you can hold onto a faster pace.
- Find a fun route to run.
How it Works
- In this drill, the athlete runs for a set time instead of a set distance. So the runner would run for, say, 15 minutes, then turn around and run back to the starting point for a total run of 30 minutes.
- Time can be adjusted as the runner improves their skill and conditioning.
- Runners shouldn’t run too fast. The point of a long run is to improve endurance not speed.
- Runners should also run a route they are familiar with and if possible, scenic and enjoyable.
