Ep 22: The Science of Endurance Training

While the science of endurance training has progressed steadily over the decades, there has been a significant progress in recent times. Eluid Kipchoge’s sub-2-hour marathon effort is a major breakthrough. However, the training advice on the internet and the science quoted t support it can be confusing, and even at times conflicting. In this episode, we tried to put together a structure to endurance training based on the latest science. Host Aditi speaks with Coach Ron George, where he talks about evolution of endurance training and the latest science, fuses it with his on-ground experience working with endurance athletes.

Here are some of the topics discussed in this episode

  • Principles of Endurance Training for Runners
  • Volume, Intensity, Polarization, and Periodization in Training
  • How to bring Specificity and Individualization to Training
  • Training Considerations for Women and Masters Runners
