The Ultra Body - Heart & Lungs

We hear all the time about turning your body into a "fat-burning machine". In theory your body has enough fat stores to fuel a run for a damn long time, certainly longer than any standard ultra-distance running event. The beauty of developing a strong and efficient aerobic system is that your body is able to utilise fat as its primary fuel source, which facilitates running for an extended period of time without flopping to the ground in a sugar-deprived state of bonk-ed-ness.

Why heart-rate training will change your running.

Most runners run too hard too often. And when I say too hard, I'm more often than not also including your 'on' gear in that category - a lot of runners have a "comfortable pace" that is too fast for optimal training load and endurance development. Add to that your elusive fast gear, and you're running too fast and/or hard way more regularly than you should.
