Train Smarter

It’s almost 40 years since the start of the mass-participation running boom, a fitness revolution that has changed the lifestyles of tens of millions of people across the globe.

Back in the late 70s, there was limited expertise available for non-elite runners on how best to train and attain maximum race performance, minimising the risk of injury and avoid becoming overtrained.

Thanks to 30 years of sports science research we now know a lot more about the underlying exercise physiology and nutrition of endurance exercise but the questions facing runners remain the same:

How hard, long and frequently should I train to maximise fitness but stay injury-free?

How can I reduce my risk of injury?

What nutritional and psychological strategies can I employ to enhance my race performance?

Although most runners understand the basics of training, the real challenge is to gather together the best practice and latest scientific thinking from running research, then apply it to a training programme.


The Science Behind Running

In this new report, you’ll find the latest training advice on how to improve performance using the latest strength and cross-training techniques.

There’s also extensive advice on injury – the most common reason why runners miss their training and race targets. This includes the latest advice on injury prevention, as well as techniques for an accelerated return to running when injury does strike.

In addition, we look at what the recent science says about the best psychological and nutritional strategies, and what this means for runners looking for a new PB.

The American author Dorothy Brande once wrote “Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier”. We agree entirely – if you’re a runner looking to cross the next performance frontier, simply open your mind to the advice in this special report and expect great things!
