Running faster by running slower. Tips please

Recommended Posts

I don't use the old 220 minus your age or Maffetone's 180 minus your age - I actually do a max HR test and work it out on the Karvonen method - at least this way it's individualised

Also adding in scheduled short (20-30step walks) every 5min works very well in building an endurance base - but you don't get caught up in the mathematics - it can be 20 steps every 3min at first and training for an IM it can be 20 steps every 10min to simulate aid stations

Agree with the 4 steps idea. Couldn't do the nose only thing. But if it works then go for it. 

Just consciously slow down. Walk. Try really hard to go slowly. It's not easy. 

thought the nose thing might be good for you WA guys to avoid eating too many flies....?  :D

Ever had a fly lodged up your nose? Breathe through the mouth with teeth together as a filter. :).

We don't breathe too hard anyway. Cut the course enough and it's piece of piss
