How Fast Should I Run | 3 Types Of Runs

Do you have a plan when you head out the door to go for a run?  Have you been wondering…how fast should I run? When I first started running 9 years ago, I would go outside and would just try to run as fast as possible. I thought “running is cardio and if I’m not going at 100% then I’m not working out.”

 

In episode 25 on the Healthy Runner Podcast, I tackled this all too common error in training I find in many injured runners or runners who want to get faster.  I shared what I learned during my certified run coaching course through the Road Runners of America.  This information was super helpful in helping my clients maximize their potential and improve their running fitness to exceed their expectations.  Clients of mine are running personal bests when it comes to distance and time!  It is all because of the strategies I outline in this episode.

 

I wanted to share how you can prevent the common pitfalls we see in new runners and discuss the 3 types of runs you should know about!

 

In this episode, I discuss the importance of understanding the different types of runs, what they are, and how and when you should be doing them!

All this and more breaking down the benefits and risks of different running workouts with the goal to stay healthy because if you are injured then you can’t run!

“I can’t thank Duane and his coaching team enough, especially coach Lu, for helping me fulfill my marathon dream!!!  I have participated in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program twice now and all the coaches were very supportive.

Duane’s strength training helped me to get stronger so I can run faster without injury.  Coach Lu’s knowledge, tips, strategies and support not just helped me finish my first marathon but crushed my goal!  I recommend the Healthy Runner coaching program 100% if you want to take your running to the next level.

“I struggled to get back into running after being diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in my left knee. A friend of mine suggested I check out the Healthy Runner podcast and I’m glad I did! I was lucky to grab a spot in the Healthy Runner Coaching Program and I have gained so much from miles away. I’ve gained tools to be a lifelong runner through the run and strength plan. I’m constantly gaining more mobility and look forward to my future of running. Duane is a great coach that gives you personalized assistance and helps you understand any questions you have! I’m definitely getting my spark back!”

Working with Duane has been a game-changer for my running. I’ve been in an endless cycle of injuries for the past five years and needed to make a change.

I connected with Duane through his Healthy Runner Facebook group, and then we began our virtual physical therapy visits. Virtual sessions work great for me because I’m constantly traveling and can access care wherever I reside. Even though I’m not in the clinic, I still receive the same quality of experience!

The best part is Duane is a physical therapist, runner, and coach, so he understands how important running is for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being! If you want to become a stronger, healthier, and faster runner, look no further!
