SPORTS YOKOHAMA Vol.33:Feature(2/4)

Running Plan

Warm-upThere are four objectives of warming up. A warm-up helps you (1) raise the temperature of the entire body; (2) get the cardiorespiratory system ready; (3) coordinate the nerves and muscles of the entire body to ensure good running form; and (4) check the fatigue level of the muscles and tendons to prevent injury. Keep these objectives in mind when warming up.

Here are two sets of exercises that are effective in meeting objective (3). These exercises stimulate the muscles you are going to use when running and get them ready for the run. Try them before hitting the road, in a way you feel comfortable with.

Hip joint swinging

1 Stand upright. 2 Put your right leg forward, and swing your hip joints back and forth. Repeat this with the left and right legs alternately 10 times each.

Running Program for Beginners

What should novice runners do to practice running? The chart at right shows a model running program developed based on the book called “Lore of Running” (written by Tim Noakes, translated by Japan Running Society and published by Taishukan Company). A survey conducted by the Sports Medical Center shows that people who start practicing running with this program are less prone to injury than those who start with full-fledged running practices.
The first six weeks of the program are focused on walking to develop the basic physical fitness necessary to keep the body moving for a long time. This period of time is also intended for you to check whether you are physically fit enough to run (e.g., the heart condition). The program helps you control the urge to run prematurely. Putting an excessive training load on the body at a premature stage may lead to injury, which makes you unable to practice for a while. In order to develop the basic physical fitness for running, it is vital to start your training with walking.
Those of you who look to run in a marathon may want to do longer running practices. But remember, when you are a week away from the race, shift the focus to reducing the fatigue from the training you have done till then. If you keep training hard until just before the race, chances are that the accumulated fatigue will affect your performance. So, from a week before the race, focus your training on stretching and short running practices.

Running Program * Run at the pace you feel comfortable with (5 to 7 minutes/km).
