Quote Of The Day
“Training methods continue to evolve in the sport of running, but today’s innovators are working at the margins, tinkering with different methods of incorporating cross-training, altitude training, and other such practices into their regimens … Mo Farah‘s training in the second decade of the twenty-first century is not much different from Bill Rodgers‘ training in the 1970s. Rodgers ran upward of 120 miles per week, and Farah runs up to that amount. Rodgers did about 80 percent of his running at low intensity, and Farah does the same.”
– Excerpt from Matt Fitzgerald‘s new book 80 / 20 Running: Run Stronger and Race Faster By Training Slower, which attempts to bring Lydiard’s training to the masses. Believe it or not, you may actually get faster by running slower on your easy days.
