Ieuan Thomas had a big year in 2017. Not content with going to his first World Championships, really stamping his mark on the 3000m steeplechase event and breaking 4 minutes for the mile (3.59), he also dipped under 8 minutes for the 3000m (7.59). He also took his 1500m time down to 3.43. It’s going to be really exciting to see what happens in 2018! 


To help you have a breakthrough year in 2018 Saucony athlete Iuean shares his top 5 tips for running success! 
1. Set realistic goals
Whether you're just starting your athletic journey, or a seasoned runner, setting clear, realistic goals can keep you motivated throughout the year! Make them challenging, yet achievable!
2. Be social
Finding a running club or group to train with could be the best choice you've ever made! Not only will sessions be more enjoyable, having other people to train with can push you to a whole new level!
3. Pick your races
There are so many races about that it's easy to get caught up trying to race them all. If you want to run fast, make sure training is your priority and target specific races. If you're going to run other races, make sure they fit in your program, and don't taper!
4. Don't neglect the S&C
Supplement your mileage with a good S&C program. Weight training is often overlooked by runners worried they will put on muscle mass. With the right program you will gain strength, but not bulk, making you faster and preventing injuries through weakness.
5. Get the right gear
Running is one scenario where it's ok to have lots of shoes! Find a cushioned, comfortable pair for your daily training and a lightweight racing flat for fast sessions and races. Personally I love the Saucony Liberty ISO and Saucony Fastwitch 8!
