When you see athletes run on tracks you might believe it is easy to do same or you are likely to believe that they are magicians considering the way athletes like Usain Bolt dash to the finish line and wait for the rest to meet up. Unfortunately the Olympic games won't hold this year due to the covid19 pandemic, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do some practice. Rizhealth have written down 6 ways to run faster below.

1. Learn to run

Have you ever wondered while athletes do short sprints of 15 to (maybe) 40 meters before the main event? It is very simple, they do that to accelerate better.

3. Alternate your pace

This means pace from sprinting to jogging and vice versa. When you do this, you are slowly and steadily building not just your speed but also your endurance levels.

Be consistent with your speed. This means if you start today with a high tempo make sure to maintain it, do not drop it. Instead, look for ways to overcome challenges that might make you slow down. Always remember life is filled with challenges but you have to be strong to win.
