In this post we provide a baseline level of understanding of the physiology that allows–or limits–the ability to go far and fast. This is an essential building block toward understanding how a runner’s endurance and speed relate. And if your aim is to get across the finish line as quickly as possible, you need to develop not just the endurance to cover the distance, but the ability to cover it at your goal pace. We present here a modern understanding of the physiology of endurance and speed–one in which we can train them as two sides of the same coin.
The Brooklyn Marathon (and Half Marathon), hosted by NYC Runs, is definitely an interesting course and one that requires a strategy. This year will mark the first running of this new course, and over 20k people are expected to cross the starting line for the race (combined). If you're looking to do your best, don’t wing it.
Established in 2009, the Dashing Whippets Running Team (DWRT)is a New York-based running team founded upon, and driven by, the diversity of our team members. Comprised of runners from all over the city, the country and the world, with greatly different running goals, our team finds unity in recognizing and appreciating our differences, our mutual enjoyment of running, and participating together in the New York running community and beyond. We at Bakline are incredibly proud to be partnered with such a diverse range of runners all under the same club colors. Our unity to bring members from both our clubs and coaching together can only strengthen the running experience for all who take part. It's a fantastic opportunity to support one another and outfit one of the premier running clubs in the nation.
