I’ve officially listened to one too many running questions, answered by non-runners.In this episode of the podcast I’m talking about:
- The 10% rule. Is it real? Is it helpful? What should you do instead.
- Can you ever really ‘bank time’ in anything. The old saying is for every 10 seconds you go out too fast, you lose 1 minute in the second half. In my case I think it was about 8 seconds too fast in the first half and I lost about 40 seconds per km in the back half. Which is pretty close and you get the idea, things go very poorly.
- Fuelling. Why you can’t just do it once or twice in training and why you need more than you think you do.
