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.

Thanks to Club La Santa for the locations used in this shoot.

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!

Well, we would love to know what road running is like where you live or any tips you might have, so please let us know in the comment section below 👇

Road Vs Off-Road Running | Are You Training On The Best Terrain?

Running on the road and running off-road are very different when it comes to training. One is great for variation, injury prevention and switching off mentally, whereas the other is great for consistency and faster workouts. Which do you prefer?

Check out the GTN Shop:

There is no black and white rule when it comes to choosing off road or on road for your run training, we both mix the two. As a general rule, doing the longer less pace specific runs off road and the faster work on a harder surface such as road or track works well. And, if you are currently only running on one surface, then gradually mix it up to prevent injuries.

If you enjoyed this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends. 👍

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.

2015 Falmouth Road Race from RUNNING National Broadcast Series

The Running Cam - 2017 Great Ocean Road Marathon

A record of over 7,000 participants turned out for Victoria’s iconic Great Ocean Road Running Festival across Apollo Bay and Lorne.

The two day festival of running offered people of all ages and abilities the choice of seven distances from the new Great Ocean Road Walk to the 1.5km Kids’ Gallop all the way up to the 60km Ultra Marathon.

Having completed the half marathon distance here many times before, it was time to step up and do the full marathon. It didn't all go to plan, but marathons rarely do. I hope you enjoy the highs and lows of my race!
