There are eight different types of runs which would lead to a fit and a healthy body and all these runs are practiced by runners all over the world. Let’s discuss all these types of runs:
- Recovery run: it is one of those run which is one of the shortest run and is performed at an easy pace. These should be done slower to make you feel comfortable. For example – 3 miles run is a type of recovery run.
- Base run: it is one of those run which is a moderate length run and in this run, the runner runs at its natural pace. For example- 5 miles at natural pace
- Long run: it is another type of base run in which a runner runs for a long distance at its natural pace. For example: 20 miles at natural pace
- Progression run: A progression run is a run that begins at a runner’s natural pace and ends with a faster segment at anywhere from marathon down to 10K pace.
- Fartlek: A fartlek workout is a base run that mixes in intervals of varying duration or distance. They can also serve as a less-structured alternative to a traditional interval session such as a track workout.
- Hill Repeats: Hill repeats are repeated short segments of hard uphill running.
- Tempo Run: A tempo run is a sustained effort at lactate threshold intensity.
- Intervals: Interval workouts are a type of run which contains repeated shorter segments of fast running.
