SOMETHING IN THE WAY YOU MOVE

MAKE 2019 A PB YEAR!

WITH SO MANY HOURS SPENT OBSESSING OVER KIT, TRAINING PLANS, NUTRITION, HYDRATION AND STRAVA SEGMENTS, HOW MANY OF US ACTUALLY HAVE TIME TO CONSIDER THE WAY WE RUN? TIM MAJOR TEAMS UP WITH MOVEMENT GURU SHANE BENZIE TO SEE IF PERFECTING YOUR TECHNIQUE IS WORTH THE DISTRACTION

I have always thought of running as the ultimate in simplicity. The innate action of putting one foot in front of the other at slightly faster than walking pace. Just lace up your trainers, get out the door and go. If you want to go further, run further. If you want to go faster, try harder.

What I’d never done – despite happily spending countless hours researching the benefits of yet another pair of potentially game changing trainers – is invest much time considering how I actually run. I was fairly sure I was doing it right. After all, I’d been running around pretty much all of my life. Yet, after spending just two hours with the incredibly enthusiastic Shane Benzie, I knew I would never run the same way again.

About Men's Running

For the last three years running, I’ve had the same New Year’s resolutions: to learn Japanese and to play electric guitar. I’m not sure what the sell-by date of these should be but to suffice to say I can say ‘goodbye’ in Japanese and the only riff I know is Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water – hardly the stuff rock legends are made of. But, more happily, my running resolutions are already proving more successful this year. First, was just to run more often. Lifestyle changes, dodgy Achilles and lack of motivation meant that the last two years have been something of a running wilderness. But renewed enthusiasm over the last 12 months has seen a return to something approaching form and my goal to improve all-round strength is definitely working. I’m running fewer miles but a focus on conditioning has seen marked improvement. Thankfully, this month’s guide lays the foundations for making 2019 your best running year. From top advice on how to nail your tempo running to how to improve your mental focus; the best time of day to run and how to come back from injury, we’ve brought everything together to make sure 2019 is a PB year!
