Run Drills

Including some run drills within a training session can be a good idea and I’d recommend these drills to be complete 2-3 times each over 15-25m with a light jog of another 50-75m after each one. You could include these two times per week during your runs.

I'd usually complete a session like this with 4-6 x 100m stride outs (5km pace) applying the technique before warming down.
