Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation ( for another weekly endurance podcast. Coach Patrick breaks down the cost of running too fast in your training. In terms of missed peak fitness, but also in terms of long-term development. The term Ballistic Load applies to the cost of running; and it increases as you run harder. Instead of trying to find a shortcut, use a well-thought season plan to keep yourself run healthy and on track for a better overall season.

Key Talking Points:

  • Consistency and Frequency are the most important fitness levers.
  • Opportunity Cost of missed training is high.
