The Secret of Running

By Hans van Dijk and Ron van Megen

Publication Date: May 1, 2017

ISBNs: 9781782551096

How much power does your human engine have? How much power do you need for running in different conditions? How can you optimize your training and racing performance? How can you use power meters to improve your results? What are the ultimate limits of human performance? The Secret of Running answers all of these questions. All factors determining the performance in running (from 800-meter race to marathon) are explained step by step: training, nutrition, body weight, running form, wind, hills, temperature, running gear, power meters and much more.

Run With Power

RUN WITH POWER is the groundbreaking guide you need to tap the true potential of your running power meter. From 5K to ultramarathon, a power meter can make you faster—but only if you know how to use it. Just viewing your numbers is not enough; you can only become a faster, stronger, more efficient runner when you know what your key numbers mean for your workouts, races, and your season-long training. In Run with Power, TrainingBible coach Jim Vance offers the comprehensive guide you need to find the speed you want.

Running Efficiency

  1. What is efficienct running
  2. How do I become a more effieicnt runner?

Running Efficiency

You Know How It Feels

We’ve all felt it. It’s when everything just works. Each movement aligns perfectly in a flowing, running symphony. It feels great! All cylinders firing with a precision and tempo that almost makes it feel easy. You know how it feels, and Stryd can help make it your running experience.

How To Improve It

Running mechanics — in particular, run form and technique, and muscle strength and condition — are key factors to fast and efficient running.

Run Form: Conscious adjustments to form (e.g., the correct shin landing angle and increased cadence) can demonstrate increased pace while reducing braking and exertion. Specific exercises and drills that target lasting form improvements lead to faster running at reduced effort.

Muscle Strength and Condition: Running-specific strength and conditioning training, such as plyometrics, heavy weights, and hill sprints, can be used to strengthen muscles and tendons, improve muscle control. This allows runners to not only produce more power, but also to recycle that power, and run more efficiently.

Running Efficiency

How To Quantify It

Stryd uses power, a fundamental mechanical measure, to quantify running efficiency.

Stryd’s Running Efficiency Score (RES) is built upon a biomechanical running stiffness model to assess runner’s form & technique, as well as muscle strength, condition ,and fatigue.

Stryd prescribes personalized drills, strength training, and high-intensity run training to improve runner’s form and techniques, as well as muscle strength and condition.

Stryd helps runners run more efficiently.
