This week, the Diz Runs Book Club wrapped up our first book study: a 6 week look at the book 80/20 Running.
This book did a lot to change the way I look at running and training both for myself and for the runners I coach.
In this post I want to share some of the things from the book that really stood out to me, caused me to think, and ultimately made me a believer that if I want to get faster in races I need to slow down in my training.
Sounds ridiculous, right?
I know. I thought so too.
But after having the author (Matt Fitzgerald) on the podcast, talking to him about the science behind the book, and then reading it myself I’ve got to say that I’m convinced.
