Running Mechanics Series: Cadence (Part 1)

In my next series, I will be covering running mechanics and how to improve them. I’m also going to include a post about the difference in running mechanics between road and trail runners - something which I plan on doing my doctorate on. Lastly, I’ll


How to Train: Closing Thoughts

It’s here! For those of you who have been following my How to Train blog series - you’ll be sad (I hope) to learn this is my final post of the series. In this post I wanted to summarize my thoughts on everything I’ve said


How to Train (Part 4) – Threshold Training

In this penultimate post on how to train - I will be discussing the key aspects of threshold (THR) training, after having covered both; polarized training (PT), high-volume training (HVT), and high-intensity interval training (HIIT) in previous posts. As with the previous three models, there


How to Train (Part 3)

For those of you who read my blog posts; How to Train (Part 1) and How to Train (Part 2), you’ll be familiar with the four different training models I touched on (Polarized, High Volume, Threshold and High Intensity Interval Training). Additionally, you’ll remember that


How To Train (Part 1)

In this two-part blog post, I will be covering the basics of How to Train. The first part will deal with the different types of training, while the second will delve deeper into what your training should look like, based on the types of training
