>General Running>Power Running Physiology Enters the Mainstream
The Logic of Long Distance
Physicist Richard Feynman once said, "VO2Max and five bucks will get you a cup of joe at Starbucks."
It's a bold new word out there.
Undeterred by the personal attacks, I persisted in sharing the “power running” theory and, more importantly, the significantly large body of research and empirical data supporting it.
Rich, against my own better judgment - since I'll bet you'll make me regret it - here's some friendly advice:
Quit sharing your "theories." Try sharing YOU.
If you have strange, new, wonderful ideas about running - GREAT. But nobody is going to want to hear them from some stranger who doesn't have any interaction with the community, no profile, no log, makes no mention of their own running, and doesn't share the first thing about themselves.
If you're actually sincere, stop with the two thousand word screeds (and this is from a master of the two thousand word screed). Start talking about you. Share your experience. Tell us how your training is going. Join in some conversations.
And then ... after you've been here a few weeks or months or years ... trying bring up your ideas again. In the context of your OWN training ... as in ... "Hey, this has been working for me."
The new book Run Faster – from the 5K to the Marathon by Brad Hudson and Matt Fitzgerald presents as fact many of the physiological tenets of the Power Running theory.
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
