400m Training vs McDonalds. September 12, 2011.

I found this great article by Latif Thomas, a USATF Level II, USTFCCCA Event Specialist (Sprints, Hurdles & Relays). His article reiterates what I have been telling my athletic clients for years:  train fast, race fast. For the complete article click here. Below, here is a little bit of Thomas’ wisdom:

“Giving volumes of aerobic work and slow repeats to 400m runners is the equivalent of eating McDonalds five days per week. You can do it. Technically it is considered food. And your stomach will be full so you can easily argue that you fed yourself.

What do you think?

Stay Strong and Healthy,
