Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation ( for another weekly endurance podcast. Coach Patrick breaks down the macro-level tactics for endurance runners to manage their speed training.

Key Talking Points:

  • There are significant consequences for a poor run speed training strategy: injury, burnout, fatigue, failure to peak...just to name a few.
  • Elite runners dedicate 20% of their time (or less) to run speed...and so should you!
  • Strivers try too hard; Achievers use the Minimum Effective Dose.
  • Less run speedwork can actually have a greater impact.

Thanks for listening to this Endurance Nation podcast...find more online here.
