Train Slower to Row/Run Faster

​

"Do you want to run faster? Then you need to slow down."

Matt Fitzgerald - Acclaimed endurance sports coach, nutritionist, and author. 

​

I hate to break it to you, but most of use train too fast from a sport and exercise physiology as well as a health and sports performance perspective.

​

As crazy as this sounds, we should be training slower.

​

The 80/20 principle, used in many areas of life!, is also applicable to cardiovascular fitness for both health and performance benefits.

​

80% of cardiovascular training should be at a low intensity.

​

Only 20% of cardiovascular training should be at a high intensity.

​

As humans we were designed as endurance beings and should have well adapted aerobic energy systems - i.e. fat burning.

​

Yet, living in a culture of technological advance means we are not as active as we would have been in decades gone by. This reduction in activity means a reduction in training for our aerobic system.

​

This is bad news for both health and performance.

​

Join this talk to learn more about the aerobic and anaerobic systems and why running slower in training will keep you:
-healthier
-more able to burn fat
-less prone to injury
-able to run faster in events and races
and
-smash the PBs you’ve been seeking!

​

I use data from my own training to show:

-the positive impact of training slower

-how stress plays a negative part in training performance and why training at a lower rate is imperative when we are stressed
