Episode 111: The Strength Running Podcast | Base Training, the Maffetone Method, and Why You’re Not ‘Lungs with Legs’
We love learning about the science of endurance training and in this episode host Jason Fitzgerald (ex collegiate runner, 2:39 marathon PB, and Strength Running coach) takes us through the best way to build an endurance base.
Jason describes the elements of base training, methods to follow (and others to avoid), insights from other experts and his preferred approach based on years of personal experience as a runner and as a coach.
Listen while you warm up for a workout, during a cool-down, while doing chores or when getting psyched up to plan a new training block. Also good to pair with an easy shakeout run.
