Long distance running is all about getting into a rythmn
and keeping going at a pace. If you go a bit too fast, you'll blow up, of you
start to slow it is very difficult to catch time up
Most of the important work that you will do is based
around improving your endurance, increasing your V02 max level and working
as efficiently as possible, for long periods of time. However, strength
and core stability should not be neglected as these are important for maintaining
form during the full length of a race.
