Training question
  • Say I do an easy run (about one hour) where the only goal is to keep my heart rate as low as possible. Now if afterwards I decide to follow up with a (shorter) tempo run, do I keep the aerobic benefits of the low HR run? In other words: are the benefits of low HR running instantaneous, or do you need an amount of rest (like in quality workouts)?

  • Depends on what benefits you are talking about. There are lots of factors that contribute to improved aerobic performance, but in general I'd say you are fine doing that. You also will gain benefits for strength just from time on your feet.
