To achieve maximum performance, you need to improve your endurance and your speed. You can do this by, running more miles, running faster, or some combination of both. The Advanced schedule is a much more sophisticated training program than that offered to Novice Runners or to Intermediate Runners. In order to achieve full benefit from this program, before starting you probably need to be running 4-5 days a week, 20-30 miles a week or more, and at least have an understanding of the concepts of speedwork.
The advanced schedules are designed only for the hard core, those willing to take it to the limit. Only a small percentage of today’s runners classify themselves as “Advanced” or want to follow this demanding a schedule. If that is you, welcome.
Strength training involves the performance of physical exercises which are designed to improve strength and endurance. It is often associated with the use of weights but can take a variety of different forms.
Sport-specific strength training programs are fundamental to an athlete’s development and success. Long gone are the days when coaches shunned weight lifting for fear that it might hinder the performance of fine skill and correct technique. It’s now accepted that high levels of strength are a prerequisite to superior speed, power, strength endurance and overall sporting performance.
Strength training is typically associated with the production of lactate, which is a limiting factor of exercise performance. Regular endurance exercise leads to adaptations in skeletal muscle which can prevent lactate levels from rising during strength training.
Flexibility exercise is one of the four types of exercise along with strength, balance and endurance. Ideally, all four types of exercise would be included in a healthy workout routine.
Flexibility exercises stretch your muscles and can help your body stay flexible. These exercises give you more freedom of movement for other exercise as well as for your everyday activities. It may also help you avoid discomfort when confined in a space for a long period of time.
Strength training has become such an integral part of an athlete’s training regimen.
Strength training is, one of the most effective avenues available to us for enhancing numerous aspects of physical health and performance-related variables. In addition to the positive physical outcomes mentioned, there also is evidence of mental health benefits including decreased symptoms of depression, increased self-esteem and self-concept, and improved cognitive capabilities.
Swimming is the self-propulsion of a person through water, usually for recreation, sport, exercise, or survival. Swimming as an exercise is popular as an all-around body developer and is particularly useful in therapy and as exercise for physically handicapped persons.
Swimming is an activity that burns lots of calories, is easy on the joints, supports your weight, builds muscular strength and endurance. It also improves cardiovascular fitness, cools you off and refreshes you in summer, and is one that you can do safely into old age.
Endurance training involves placing large muscle groups under strain for longer periods at a time. Such exercise mainly affects the respiratory and cardiovascular systems and, at the muscle level, the stamina of the muscle groups used.
Types of Endurance training,
Sprinting is a skill which means you can train your body to be significantly faster. Sprinting faster is about applying the maximum amount of force down to the ground. The more force you can apply to ground the faster you will go.
Posture is the foundation that everything else is built upon. Trying to develop great sprinting mechanics and rhythm without good posture won’t work.
To sprint fast you need to have the foot land directly underneath the center of mass. Think of stepping over the knee and driving the foot straight down into the track.

Most typical marathon training plans are 16 to 20 weeks long. During this time, you’ll typically run three to five times a week, increasing your mileage as you get nearer to race day. On the other days, you can cross train, do some low intensity exercise and, most importantly, rest your legs, allowing them to fully recover.
Each training plan will include different runs, which require you to alter your pace to avoid burning out. From an easy run training pace, to a tempo run training pace, whether you’re a beginner or a well-practiced marathon runner, it can be difficult working out how fast to run.
