Our gym philosophy on running is as follows:
– We generally subscribe to the idea that efficient running form with stronger bodies will produce better results rather just “pounding the pavement” and putting mileage in.
– Furthermore the workouts should be on some splits (depending on the length of the event you may be training for): short-interval, long interval, tempo, time trial, Fartleks, and sprints. This is of course paired up with a General Physical Preparedness program like CrossFit.
– As far as form is concerned we are POSE Method-biased: a cyclical “POSE – FALL – PULL” protocol is used with a bias towards forefoot striking.
– Sometimes we load the runs (odd-object carries, rucks, plate carriers or vests, etc.)
