On Training By Herb Elliott

During an interview Herb Elliott was asked,could you give us some of your thoughts on running and training? He said this: "People today seem to be looking for complicated explanations. We tend to be overawed by scientific explanations to training. Running is simple,it really is." How true that statement is. People have a tendency to be attracted to new training systems that come out periodically touting "a better way". As you have read here before,there are fundamentals of training in every sport and distance running is no different. Preparing the body gradually to handle increasing work(stress) is the key. This system of training is logical and progressive. You don't have to be an exercise physiologist to understand the hows and whys of proper distance training.
