    Q&A: Walk-Run Progressions/Strength Training for Results/Treadmill Firmness/Higher Cadence with Slow Running

    Q&A: Walk-Run Progressions/Strength Training for Results/Treadmill Firmness/Higher Cadence with Slow Running

    In this Q&A Brodie answers the following questions:
    I had a run/walk progression question. I’m currently up to 8 run walk reps with 30 seconds for run and 75 for walking. Soon, I would like to increase the run time beyond 30 seconds. How much of an increase do you think is sensible? And when I do it, should I reduce the reps or increase the walk time so that I don’t overload the tendon?
    About how long does strength training take to show any results in running? How many hours a week of strength training would you recommend? I have a treadmill that has adjustable cushioning. I usually run barefoot on it. Is it more beneficial to have it on a firmer setting? Any advice on keeping the higher Cadence when running slow? I seem to speed up to keep up my cadence around 170.

THE podcast for running injury remedies and prevention

Brodie really knows his stuff and following his wisdom has helped me through an injury that had me sidelined for ages.
His book is on my Christmas Wishlist and if no one buys it for me I’ll buy it for myself.
Plus he’s an Aussie! 🇦🇺
Keep it up Brodie! 👍🏻👍🏻
