How To Run On The Road | Get The Most Out Of Running Training

I'm often surprised at how many people I see running purely indoors on the treadmills and hardly ever venturing outdoors onto the roads, and you might be thinking that road-running is purely for marathon runners or maybe people that race long-distance on the road, but actually, there are benefits that we could all have by just getting outside and giving it a go.

Now, you're pretty much always gonna be sharing the road with other road users, so it's really important to make sure you're seen. Even in the daylight, try to wear something that's bright that just catches the eyes of the drivers and the other road users, and if you are running at night, it's probably a good idea to invest in a little head torch or maybe something that's got a flashing light behind you or on your arm.

And that brings me on to the rules of the road. If you are somewhere where they drive on right, you probably want to run on the left-hand side and then if the worst comes to worst and you see a car coming towards you, you can just step off into the verge to move out of the way.

If you're a little bit worried about going outside on your own, then why don't you think about taking your phone with you as an emergency backup or if you don't want to carry that, just write an emergency number down and pop that in your pocket.

If one of the things that's putting you off going outside and leaving the comforts of the gym is not having loos nearby or maybe not having an energy bar in your bag, then just plan around that. If you plan a route that goes near your public bathrooms, that will solve that one, and maybe just put a bit of cash in your pocket and if you do suddenly get hungry or need a bit of sugar, run by your local convenience store.

If you are used to doing most of your running indoors on a treadmill, then the shoes you use for that will be absolutely fine for running on the road. You want something that's got a decent amount of cushioning because it is obviously hard..

One of the advantages of running on the road are the routes are endless, and if you have a car, you can just jump in it and then pull out at a spot that takes your fancy. If you're worried about what to do with your keys, then why not just tie them onto your shoe or maybe just tuck them in your sports bra.

If you're a trail runner, you've maybe been getting a little bit bored of having poor conditions underfoot or the bad weather. Then why don't you try a little bit of road running? The roads will usually be cleared by most counsels, and if you're running between buildings or hedges, you'll have a bit of added shelter. You can jump in your car or hop on public transport and you'll soon be able to find some roads suitable for your training, and the best part is that it's free!

How to Have Proper Running Form | Running

Watch more How to Run videos:

So we talk about correct running form. That word can really be thrown around, I'm not sure there really is correct running form, but there is running form that could make your run a lot more comfortable. Starting from head to toe, when you're running, you want to keep your chin down a little bit, you almost want to fell like you're, there's a thread at the top of your head, pulling you up. You don't want your chin too down, because you'll actually close off your airway a little bit. And you don't want your chin too far up, because you're not really sure where all that energy's going, and you can feel that tension in your neck start to happen when you do raise your chin a little bit. So try to keep your head level a little bit. Notice where you're holding tension.

Slowly, through a long run, you can start to feel your shoulders creep up a little bit, and you can feel that tension in your shoulders and your neck. So if you relax a little bit, it can also help you reduce the amount of energy that you're using for your run. Now what you want to do with your arms, hold your elbows at about a ninety degree angle, and hold a very small fist, almost having your fingertips just touching the palm of your hand, and just relax your hands. And throughout your run, when you start to feel tension building up, just shake your arms out a little bit and relax your shoulder. Hold your torso up, straight. Engage your core so that you're holding up a good posture when you're moving forward. Don't lean forward, at your waist, just kind of gradually from your ankles all the way up to your shoulders, lean forward a little bit. So with your feet, when you're landing on the ground, you want to land on the ground right in the midfoot to the balls of your feet. Sometimes when you land on your heels, you're actually landing too far ahead of your body, so what happens is when your bodyweight hits the ground, you're creating this shock that's going all the way up through your ankles, your knees, and your hips.

Again, over time that can cause a lot of discomfort and possibly an injury. So again, try to think about having your foot land right underneath your bodyweight, and with your hips, make sure your hips are forward, and make sure your hips are stable. One great thing about doing core exercises for running is that it keeps your entire core area stable while you're running. Sometimes when you're out running you might see people whose hips dip a little bit with each run. That can also cause injury down the road, so try to keep those stable, keep your hips stable, keep your hips pointed down, but you also don't want them pointed up too much. Just go in the direction that you're running. And when you're running and swinging your arms, swinging your arms forward but being careful not to swing your arms across your midline. What that does is that it almost throws off your balance a little bit. Keep your arms moving forward and again, keep your arms relaxed, keep your hands relaxed, but again try not to go across your midline too much.

Just keep them back and forth. Let your arms do what they want to do, but keep them controlled just a little bit. Just try to stay in tune with your body, and just check in every once in a while and notice where you're holding tension. Starting a running program can be hard enough as it is, but when you start to notice how much tension you're holding it can take more energy away then you actually realize, and as you start to build up in your runs, maybe working towards that ten mile race, or working towards that half marathon, it can deplete a lot of energy that you're working so hard to get through the race for. Just try to relax, try to relax and have fun.

My Great North Run 2017 Experience | Half Marathon Road Running Race

So the weekend of September 9th and 10th my friend Gabe and I took a drive to Newcastle to participate in The Great North Run 2017 half marathon.

We were both running for charity, I was running for Family Fund and Gabe for Severn Hospice and we were both looking forward to the event. Even more so as Mo Farah was competing in the same race!

The Great North Run is a fantastic event, probably the worlds most loved half marathon so I was super excited to be taking part and was pushing for a PB. So i took my iPhone 7 and GoPro Hero 5 sessions to film the weekend and make this video.

I hope anyone watching this who has run the half marathon will be reminding of how great it was, but also anyone wanted to know what the event is like will get a good idea should you wish to compete.

I was happy with a new PB beating my old time by over 16mins and will definitely be returning for the 2018 event.
