Train Faster to Run Faster

Running Tip #5. After building mileage, speedwork or interval training is key to setting a personal best time. My favorite marathon specific workouts are Yasso 800s and mile repeats. Shorter intervals like 400s are good early in the season and during taper.

Speed improves running economy, makes marathon pace feel easy peasy, and spices up your training routine. No pain, no gain!
