Too Much Speed Kills in Distance Running

Side view of athletes sprinting on a track

"Whatever you do that is very intense has to be balanced out with a reasonable volume of easy work. The harder you go, the more volume of easier work is required, and the easier the better. Total rest won't do it. Easy aerobic activity will. That's the secret. We'll leave the physiologists and PhD theorists to tell us why." -Keith Livingstone, author of Healthy Intelligent Training
