MASTER YOUR AEROBIC FITNESS
Developing aerobic metabolism should be the number one goal of any distance runner, and few coaches understand aerobic training as well as Jay Johnson.
Johnson teaches his athletes to perform these sessions without looking at their GPS watches to learn how to run by feel. While there’s a place for pace work, when building aerobic fitness he values consistency over workout speed.
His distance running methodology is based on 4 key workouts: Fartlek runs, aerobic repeats, progression runs and progression fartleks. Learn the details of each, and how to include them in your own program.
The good news is that aerobic fitness can be improved year after year, which explains why some of the best masters triathletes are so darned fast.
