How can I progress my running training?

After several weeks your body will adapt to a training stimulus so in order to make further improvements in fitness you’ll need to progress your training. There are several ways that you can do this but it’s important to only adjust one variable at a time otherwise you risk injury.

  • Increase the volume of your running
  • Increase the frequency of your training
  • Increase the intensity (pace) of your training
  • Decrease the recovery periods during interval sessions.

I like doing cross-training such as weights, rowing or netball. Is it ok to substitute some runs for some cross-training sessions and, if so, how many actual runs should I be doing a week (minimum)?
