Training On A Treadmill
By Simon Gould
Here we have details about training on a treadmill. This is whether you're on a treadmill because you're training for a race or maybe you want to get fit. We also have some pages about anyone suffering pain or injuries while running. We've tried to cover everything for people who are experienced with treadmill running and need some further information.
If you plan to do any speed workouts then we've supplied some plans to help you. If you want to know what heart rate to have whether it's a long run, aerobic run or sprints we tell you here. Runners also need to know which food to eat and when before, during and after a treadmill run. We've given all that here including an idea as to what foods may help with your runs.
Training is something not many of us like doing. We prefer the race at the end of all the training runs. However sometimes it can be more fun with some special treadmill workouts we've provided. Also working up to the race is what we all have to do and only with practise can we get faster and better at our running. When we started we struggled with even short distances.
What else we look at in this section are injuries to certain parts of the body and how they can affect your training sessions. We look at what causes them and how to overcome them. We look at proper running form and how some different treadmill workouts like running sideways and backwards can benefit you or not as the case maybe.
When treadmill running it's easy to over do it. Exercise makes you feel so good that it can be tempting to do it more and more often. That's why we answer here on what it's like to run everyday on a treadmill. When it's ok to do it and when you may want to think twice. Training can prepare you for a race or it might be the training itself that you enjoy.
