Reduced training time improves runner's performance

More is less when it comes to training for a race. Runners that reduced their training time 25 percent shaved one minute from their ten-kilometer times and an average 7 percent from their 30-second sprint times. (ScienceDaily)

Why? They don't say. But muscle efficiency was improved. "The amount of muscle Na+/K+ was elevated and the rate of accumulation of potassium during exercise was lowered."

About Me

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
