Drills are specific exercises developed to improve running technique, form and performance. Each drill will focus on one or more aspects of running and emphasizes them through repetitive movement. As in any form of learning it is necessary to progress gently by practising the drill slowly to ensure the correct movement. When this becomes comfortable it is time to add-in the speed element which may make the drill feel more complex. It is best to practise running drills under the guidance of a coach to ensure that each drill is being performed correctly. This also enables the runner to receive feedback on the specific movement. Drills can be performed as part of an extended dynamic warm-up or even better as a specific block within a training session where the drill can be put into practise.
During a consultation for coaching GR8running will make recommendations as to the drills that should be included into your program.
