Oliver Bernhard running tip Nº 2: vary your routine

Advice on running from ex-professional running champion, coach and On co-founder Oliver Bernhard.

 

“As strange as it may sound, your muscles will have soon stored away all the topographic details and the performance they will be asked for used on your regular running route. If every Tuesday is when you put on your running shoes, your body will go into “autopilot” – it’s seen it all and done it all before. So, if you have to run the same route, at least do it backwards for a change. Challenge your body by varying the sensations and build up a repertoire of running routes around you. When you get more into your training routine, you’ll find that variation is especially vital to making progress.”
