Episode 47 is an interview with Matt Fitzgerald about his book 80/20 Running. Matt is an award-winning endurance sports journalist and bestselling author of more than 20 books on running, triathlon, fitness, nutrition, and weight loss, including Brain Training for Runners and Racing Weight. His byline appears regularly in national publications including Men's Journal, Outside, and Women's Running. Matt is an experienced running and triathlon coach and certified sports nutritionist. New research proves that runners of all experience and ability levels improve most when they do 80 percent of their training at low intensity. Yet the typical recreational runner does less than half of his or her training in this intensity zone. In his book 80/20 Running, Matt makes the case for slowing down to get faster and shows runners how to break out of the moderate-intensity rut. I believe deeply in this principle and see too many runners getting into this rut. Listen to this podcast with an open mind and reap the benefits in your running! His book 80/20 Running is on Amazon.

Thank you so much for supporting my podcast! I really appreciate the people who take the couple of minutes out of their day to get onto Apple Podcasts to rate and review me. I read all of my reviews and they sure do inspire me to keep working on this podcast! Thanks so much!!
Next week’s interview is one I am very excited about! I chat with Kelly Starrett, an expert on mobility and helping runners improve their range of motion, and thus their running. I’m sure you’ll get a lot of out that one too!
I don’t know about you, but I am already planning the races I want to do in the quickly approaching next few months. If you are too, email me firstname.lastname@example.org organise an individualised training plan. Have a great week of training!
