How To Increase Not Running Pace But the Distance ?




Instagram: @olga_dont_stop

I like to run a lot but slowly (6:30 - 7:30). I don't want to run faster but I want to run farther. I've completed a marathon and I'm going to run an ultra-marathon.

Is it enough to do long runs and strength trainings or not?

Good afternoon.

Running at slow pace ensures a recovery and prevents from both cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems overloading.

If your goal is not to increase the running speed or achieve high sports result I don't consider it necessary to perform special interval trainings that can be associated with risks mentioned above.

Do I Need to Accelerate My Pulse up to 175 bpm?

Good afternoon,

I'm 32. I train about 3 years. My pulse wasn't more than 175 bpm for all this time even during hard interval training.

Is it normal or should I try to "accelerate" my pulse up to maximum values corresponding to my age?
