The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.
I feel comfortable with my speeds, so do you really think I should slow it down?
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

Formationflier - after reading your post and your blog page, I was wondering if you could clarify a few things for me, and I admit, I have not read through all the links yet!
1) Seems like there must be a minimum mpw range for the MAF method to work - what would that mileage be?
2) How does this strengthen legs and hips?
3) Seems like you would have to cut back on stride length/cadence if your aerobic conditioning was poor and you had to significantly decrease your pace.
You said that when you started, you were "running" a 17 min mile - does that increase the impact stress to your legs? Seems like if you maintain cadence, some will be transferred to vertical bounce=^impact force, if you slow your cadence too much seems like it is harder to run lightly = ^impact force. I am overthinking this big time=
I can walk aggressively at a 13 min pace, however I generate more impact than if I were to "run" at the same pace - although my HR would be lower walking than running.
I'm really curious about how/what you did to run that slow. I'm a little skittish when it comes to impact stress. I'm just gathering facts right now, as I am not ready to start a plan just yet.
, until you become acclimated.

I notice that the dates on posts here go up to mid 2007 or so. Does anyone still post here? Is there a better place to find an LHR training thread?
