Running training


(we speak english)
Hi! Are you a runner looking for a running training plan to reach your goals?
Well, you might be in the right place!
My name is Gabriele, this is my project and we do consultancy on everything about running, from shoes to running technique to training!

I run since 20 years, and i was lucky enough to learn from many different coaches from around the world.
And I want to help runners in running better and live better!
Here you can find more on me, in italian.

I learnt how to coach runners with the Lydiard method.
Artur Lydiard was a coach in the ’70: it is worlwide known as the “father” of endurance coaching!

Write me an email if you have any question:

How to run faster or run longer?

Every runner wants to run faster! Some runners, when they struggle to run faster, they go longer.
In both cases runners need to train in a proper way!
Unfortunately there are a lot of misconceptions about running training!

We live in a crazy fast world where almost everything is achievable in a relative short time! So many runners want to improve from zero to the marathon in 4 or 6 months.
They dont take in consideration that the body has its own (ancient) rules, that are different from we experience everyday in the world.

A good running training program has phases, and aim at the long term development of the runner!

Running the Lydiard way

Many runners don’t have a clue (including myself some years ago) about who Arthur Lydiard was
Lydiard born in New Zealand 1917: in the last century, until the last decade, there was no internet, no social media, and running was more just professional in comparison with what it is now.
Lydiard developed himself a very innovative method that he used for coaching many Olympic champions from the 1500mt to the marathons in the 60’s, the 70’s, the 80’s.
It is said that most of the coaches who came after him took inspiration from his method.

Lydiard method is quite simple in comparison with what we used to think nowdays.
Principles, not formulas, are the keys to successful training.

5 principles for a good training program

  1. The importance of aerobic foundation. Many runners do understand the importance of the foundations, but they don’t understand the importance of building foundation at an aerobic pace
  2. Adaption. A program should be just a guideline, that we can change if the things don’t go as expected
  3. Feeling based training. With all the tech devices we have today, we lost the ability to listen to our body. The body knows it all, we just need to reconnect with it!
  4. Sequential development. Lydiard is mostly famous for talking about training phases. We could not develop some skills, if we don’t have developed other skills before
  5. Timing: timing is everything. A good program developed with the wrong timing will not help you succeed when you want to.

Can I help you with your running training?

I really like to help other people avoiding the mistakes i did in the past.
Every runner would need a coach because we are not objective with ourselves, even if we know the concepts.

The Lydiard method helped me to improve what I learnt during 20 years of training
I have coached a variety of runners and two successes that I am proud of are:
Coaching a woman with scoliosis, who wore an orthopaedic corset when she was a teenager. I coached her from being a beginner to completing a 10km in 6 months.
Coaching a man to complete his first Ironman under 10 hours whilst working full time in a blue collar job. 

You can also reach your potential: just keep things simple and be consistent!
