MIX UP YOUR TRAINING
At first, a beginner can get good results with short, easy runs. However, your body will quickly adapt to this training stimulus and build up reserves.
This presents a problem for more experienced runners: over time, the fat burning gains will grow smaller.”
To avoid this situation, you need to incorporate as much variety as possible. “Don’t give your body the chance to get used to your workout,” said Sascha.
By switching up your training, you force your body to keep adapting. This, in turn, improves your performance and boosts your metabolism. “Make variety your routine: in addition to your long-distance runs, work in some intervals, fartleks, sprints, technique drills, and strength training.”
A good rule of thumb is never doing the same workout twice back to back!
