While running today I listened to a podcast on AthleteonFire.com with Matt Fitzgerald. He ia a runner, writer, coach, etc. Basically he is a brilliant mind in the world of running, nutrition, training, and more. He writes a ton of articles for a lot of premier websites and publications. He also has a few books out, including his newest, 80/20 Running. You can check him out at www.mattfitzgerald.org and @mattfitwriter.
I ran 5 miles today in around 44 minutes while listening to Matt and Scott talk about several topics, mainly 80/20 Running. It is basically the research based training idea that 80% of your running should be done at a slow pace/low effort. The remaining 20% would then be done at a hard effort.
I will not get into too much, but it's good listening and I love to hear lots of info so I can decide how I want to proceed with my own training. I look forward to reading the book.
I kept it light today in my own 5 miler mainly because tomorrow is going to be the 15 miler I missed last week.
P.S. My diet needs an overhaul:)
