How to improve your running performance
"With Eluid Kipchoge breaking the two-hour marathon barrier and the ballot results for the London marathon becoming available in the last week, running is a hot topic on everyone’s lips. Whether you’re just starting out or consider yourself a running pro, we’re here to provide some tips on how to improve your running performance." by Charlotte Stanway
How to structure your rest day
"Rest days- do you love them or hate them? Either way, if you are training hard enough, you will need a rest day. This will give your CNS time to recover, prevent overuse injuries, provide a mental break and give the muscles all important time to grow and repair."

HIIT Ratios and how to use them
The duration and number of your work and recovery phases you perform will depend on your fitness level and training goals. When performing HIIT, research suggests that the range of work and recovery for each interval be 15 seconds up to 2-3 minutes in duration (depending on the ratio of work-to-recovery used).
