Help please !
Can anyone help me please....couple of questions.....
What is the difference between an easy run and a recovery run ?
Also when building mileage and incorporating a cut back week, how much should be cutback? 50%, 75% ?
I'm no expert but my answers would be as follows...
(1) Duration: I'd say a recovery run would be 20-30 mins where as an EZ run could be for longer -- On second thoughts I'd say there's probably not a lot of difference.
(2) 10% decrease for a cutback week.
Recovery runs are short, easy runs don't have to be.
Cutback up to a third ( so long runs of 10 miles, 11 miles, 12 miles, then 8 miles etc)
CB -- Ater the cutback week would you do 12 or 13 miles?
ok thanks guys
