The Run Smarter Podcast

Jan 27, 2022

Duane Scotti is a Physical Therapist, Run Coach and host of the Healthy Runner Podcast.

Today, Brodie and Duane talk about base training. Duane goes through:

  • What is base training and what are the essential components?
  • What are the benefits of base training?
  • What are some common mistakes runners make when incorporating base training?
  • How should we progress our weekly mileage, long runs and incorporate deload weeks into our training?

Lastly, Duane answers a question from a podcast patron: "How does a runner increase their base when training for an ultra? Is it different when handling large running volumes?"
