How do I fit in the 1%ers?
In almost every sport or anything in life worth pursuing, you will hear the term, you must do the 1% "ers"!
Or maybe "Johnny does the 1% "ers" that's why he is so good'
What exactly are the 1% "ers" ?
And how do they fit in within the sport of running?
Quite simply to complete all the 1%ers just means to do all the extras that will enable you to be the very best you can be.
I know that a lot of our Runnez family runners all over the world are time poor already and the thought of adding anything else to a busy schedule is overwhelming at best and no chance of being done at worst.
So see below my tips for fitting them in.
Ok, the meat and potatoes of a training plan will always be the major training stressors and principles.
These are your - Hard workouts (Runnez sessions on your phone), or fartleks, aerobic power etc - Your volume and longer running ...
How do I improve my pace?
This is a common question !!!!
The below statement is an example I just made up but could be anyone of a Billon people right now.
"I have been running consistently for 12 months now, the first 4-5 months of training with some intensity and purpose I made drastic improvements.
The last 5-6 months I cant seem to get my pace down at all!!
Every run feels hard!
And I just cant see how my pace will ever come down, help !!"
Is the above YOU at the moment!?
We have all been there and it usually comes on after 12 months of running consistently.
I am here to tell you that it is normal, and you can work through it. Here is how to keep running and keep progressing your paces even after years of running.
Firstly, my biggest tip will always be do not be a slave to the watch, pace and times in training. Run on feel on most occasions, even in hard Runnez workouts run on feel.
Long runs- unless in a specific phase run on feel and slow...
