The Run Smarter Podcast


Jan 23, 2022

In today's episode, Brodie reviews a 2019 paper titled 'World-Class Long-Distance Running Performances Are Best Predicted by Volume of Easy Runs and Deliberate Practice of Short-Interval and Tempo Runs'. 

This paper examines world-class athletes and their training habits in a 10-week lead-up to their goal event. They analyse all different training sessions including:

  • Easy runs
  • Tempo runs
  • Long-interval training
  • Short-interval training
  • Competition
  • Time trials

Will the results uncover the secret sauce of training? Brodie goes through the conclusion and adds his thoughts and interpretations.
