Six Types Of Runs

Running is a great activity for stimulating both physical and mental health. However it can get a little old and stale especially if you run the same route every time. Here are 6 different kinds of runs to try switch things up and maybe even help improve your running performance. This list is organized in order from most aerobic (diesel) to most anaerobic (high-octane), not necessarily in order of difficulty. Also, you don’t have to do all of these runs every week. You can tailor them to your strengths and weaknesses. If you find yourself running at a fast speed but find it difficult so sustain that pace for long distances, then you should spend more time doing runs numbered 1-3. If you find that you have good endurance but lack top end speed, then you should practice more runs numbered 4-6.
