New Year is traditionally a time of goals and intentions, and you’ve probably got some running resolutions up your sleeve for the year ahead.
Whether you want to get faster, run further, mix up your training, or see out the year injury free, NURVV Run can help.
Here’s how you can use NURVV to achieve your running goals.
- Set a new PR
Want to make this the year you set a new PR? Use NURVV Run to get you there.
Whether it’s a race day goal or something you want to achieve in your own time, NURVV’s coaching tools will guide you to your target pace.
Use the Pace Coach feature to set a goal pace for your run, and you’ll get live in-ear coaching to help you achieve it.
2. Train consistently
We all know consistency is the key to running success. Train too much and you risk burnout and injury, train too little and running feels tougher, less enjoyable and you’ll lose some of those hard-earned fitness gains. But how can you find the perfect balance in 2021?
Track your progress using the NURVV Run app. You’ll get a Running Health Score, which is an at-a-glance guide to how sustainable your training is. You’ll also get warnings when you’re over- or under-training, as well as daily recommended distances to keep you on track and ensure you’re training in the optimal zone.
3. Have more fun with training
Stuck in a training rut? Adding variety to your training keeps things fresh, meaning you’ll be more motivated to get out there and run this year.
Try exploring with a new route or change up your surfaces – if you always run on the road, hit the trails or treadmill and vice versa. Have fun playing around with your speed, too.
NURVV Run’s Pace Coach feature lets you set a goal pace and distance for each run, so challenge yourself to some runs a few seconds faster than your usual pace. You could see if you can run further if you slow it down for your long runs or have a play around with some speed intervals, too.
4. Get on top of injuries
Make 2021 the year you stay injury free.
NURVV’s Running Health feature highlights any areas of your training that could increase injury risk. Whether that’s overtraining, or an aspect of your running form such as cadence (the number of times you feet hit the ground each minute as your run), step length, or the balance between your left and right side. It then gives you tips and drills to help you work on any imbalances to make you a stronger, healthier runner.
