Improving Race Performance

29 04 2015

As you may be aware, I offer personal Coaching Services through http://www.fastisfun.ca . We have runners and aspiring runners from all over. I am also still Coaching with Mississauga Track Club. There can be some pretty major differences between coaching young middle distance runners versus 5k or 10k runners but one similarity that I believe can be mutually beneficial for race performance is the addition of a pre race or pre workout uptempo run. Even before my own races you can catch me adding an additional 1-2 min pick up. I feel physiologically and mentally dialed in after performing this pick up and my body quickly adjusts to the injection of pace that a mid distance to 10k race can bring. Here is an article that may suggest there could be something to pre race pick ups/uptempos.
