Never done this?!  Check out the progressions in the video library.

Last week was our first week of a seven week program for improving your running. If you did not start on time, thats ok!  Review the post here if you missed it the first time around. An important part of the program are the drills, so don’t skip them!

Another word of advice would be to find a training partner. Since this work is primarily done outside the gym or at a track, find someone to work with! A partner will keep you accountable and can help by watching your form or videoing you to critique yourself later. Enjoy!
