10/06/2014 5 miler, slowing down with @athleteonfire and @mattfitwriter

While running today I listened to a podcast on 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 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:)
