159: How Much Does Recovery Matter?Sep 24, 2020
I need to run faster so I will run faster. I will run farther. I will sleep less so I can fit in more. I will squeeze in the workout because that is what the calendar says. Without the workouts, the rest of my training is pointless, because this is everything or nothing. This training style sounds dedicated and powerful, but actually misses a major component of any quality plan.
