Train Less to Run Faster: Less is More

Runners can improve both their short- and long-term performance results by reducing the amount of training by 25 percent and introducing speed endurance work into their regimens. By doing short sprints three to four times a week during a recent study, runners improved their times in 10-kilometer runs by a full minute after just six to nine weeks of such altered training.
