Get in shape for stress of running regimen
By Mark Higginbotham
March 10, 2003
Just as infants must crawl before they walk, those who would be runners must walk before they run.

How to strike and sustain VO2max gold, and other benefits of high-quality workouts
by Owen Anderson
Cyclists, swimmers, rowers, cross-country skiers, orienteers, triathletes and runners all engage in interval training in order to increase the amount of time they spend exercising at very high intensities. A runner scampering along without stopping at his/her current best 10k velocity might be able to sustain the pace for only 25 minutes-or-so during a workout; by breaking the effort down into eight-minute intervals, however, the same runner could often work at 10k velocity for a total of 32 minutes (four eight-minute intervals), thus boosting the 'quality' of the session (the time spent above lactate-threshold velocity) by 28%.
