We’ve teamed up with the world’s most travelled fitness expert, Ross Edgley, to provide you with a great guide all about how to Run Fast & Far.
There is no best way to run or train for endurance! This is why after analyzing thousands of studies from years of research scientists from the Department of Sport, Health and Exercise Science at the University of Hull stated there is no universally agreed consensus on the best way to train for endurance sports. They concluded: “There is insufficient direct scientific evidence to formulate training recommendations based on the limited research.”
What does this mean? Basically endurance is an art form, not an exact science. The skills and stamina of the world’s best runners remain a mystery. Yes, there are common themes and shared secrets. But no, there isn’t a set blueprint. Which is why we’ve teamed up with one of Europe’s leading Sports Scientists turned Athletic Adventurer (Ross Edgley) and the World Obstacle Racing Champion and decorated Fell Runner (James Appleton) to produce a series of running guides to deconstruct the tips, tricks and theories of the world’s best runners. From the latest science-backed nutritional advice and recipes to detailed explanations of how to fine tune your technique, this starts with The 3 Scientific Steps To Run Faster & Further which you can download now!
