Learning to Run Slowly

Running fast is a thrill, but as most runners know, the key to improving your race-day speed is to put in lots of slow, easy miles during training. If you push yourself to the limit on every run, you’ll drastically increase your risk of injury, reduce the number of miles you can run each week, and ultimately, never hit your full potential on race day.
