30-minute Overdistance (OD) run at level 1 intensity. Level 1 intensity = 60-70% of your max. heart rate.        Training via ActiveMail

TODAY, DO AN OVERDISTANCE (OD) RUN FOR 30 MINUTES AT LEVEL 1 INTENSITY: This program is designed so that your longer runs are on the weekends. You may elect to change days but keep in mind that a hard/easy pattern is the best plan. After a hard or longer day, make sure the next day or two are fairly easy. Improvements in fitness come from doing he right kinds of training combined with getting enough rest. OD sessions and how to do them are described in detail in advanced training books for endurance athletes.
