What exactly IS Power Running?

At Leapfrog we train athletes “How To” Run using your whole body: How to Accelerate, How to Maintain Pace And How to Recover…Keeping in mind FORM and MECHANICS.

To put it simply: Power Running is Running with more than just your legs…it’s using every muscle in your body. It’s how you breathe, it’s where your arms are positioned and it’s the lenght of your stride at different times during your run!! At Leapfrog we understand that all these variables change…sometimes our breath is steady, sometimes our arms are relaxed, sometimes our stride is easy; and sometimes none of these things happen:) Power Running will help you better understand how these things happen and more importantly…How To Adjust when things don’t go right.

Power Running, The Hill Series, is a 4 week training program that will teach you “how to” run with your whole body to overcome the OBSTACLE of HILLS. You will learn all the mechanics of Efficient Running thru the hill: The Uphill, The Top, The Downhill and The Flat. At Leapfrog we use workouts designed specifically for different body parts to increase power, efficiency and recovery. Run workouts that focus on Core Strength, Arm Power, Leg Power and Breathing. We target each of these areas and then mend them together to help you achieve more POWER.

ARE YOU A TRIATHLETE?? If so, Power Running is perfect training for you!! As you get off your bike, your legs have been working hard…wouldn’t it be great to know How To use the rest of your body to help you RUN STRONG to the finish?? Power Running is an absolute must for any triathlete.

10 Tips to the 10k

Leapfrog Group Training:  March 10k Training/Recovery Breathing Series

10 Tips for the 10k:  Leapfrog Athletics presents our Race Strategy for the 10k distance.  We wish you all the best:  may the road be kind, your pace be swift and the finish line find you fulfilled!!  Here is our Best Advice for your pre-race check:

1.  Arrive EARLY on race day, don’t be late and waste energy stressing about chip pick-up (most races now offer bib timing so most will get their number/chip early at packet pick up)and long bathroom lines.

2. Breathe and take some time to make a plan RUN YOUR RACE!  It’s to late to question training so accept what you’ve done and set your mind for YOUR GOAL!

3. Do a proper warm-up.  I recommend a longer distance warm-up for the 10k distance, this helps you settle in and helps you realize the length of the race…this isn’t a 5k!!  I suggest a 2 mile slow pace warm up.  Prepare your mind and body for a longer distance.

4. Do 2-3 Build Ups within 5 minutes of the start.  Help prepare your legs and heart for that initial pace of the race start

5. Line up in accordance to YOUR GOAL.  If you have been training, you have EARNED a spot at the start line, be considerate, but don’t place yourself in the back either, especially if you have trained for a goal.

6. Go out with EASY EFFORT your first mile, don’t get caught up in the initial race, go out conservative, there will be plenty of time to pass people

7. Don’t get hung up on your mile splits!!  This is HUGE!!  Run your race, don’t let the watch dictate your performance.  To many times we hear our first mile split and freak out!! We either panic because we went out “way to fast” OR we realize we are behind our pace and we try to “sprint” in order to make up for a slow first mile.  Relax…you have 5.2 miles yet!!  Control your breath, relax your mind, run your race.

8. At the turn around…This is the ½ way point, here is where the race begins!!  Racing is PASSING!!  Time to ACHIEVE!! Once we turn around, take a breath, SMILE, and just begin to pass people!!  You don’t have to sprint by people, just change something, close a gap, pass…don’t just run along someone unless you know they share the same goal.  You have trained, you have put the work in, don’t let someone else be responsible for your race.

9. LOOK GOOD!!  Listen to the spectators!!  Make eye contact, smile!  These things will help auto-correct most bad form issues (like posture!)  Spectators will tell you all you need to know about your race…if you hear “looking strong, looking good!!”  they are telling you just that!! If you hear “only ½, ¼ mile to go, you can do it”  they are telling you “wow! You look bad…you look like you’re hurting…hold on, you’ll make it!”   This is just a reminder to relax your body, look up, run tall and smile, IT WILL HELP

10. CELEBRATE YOUR RACE!!!  Congratulations, you’ve just raced what I consider the most difficult distance in racing!! Cheers and I hope to see YOU @ a Leapfrog Event in the near future.
