Default Tips for Long Distance Runners

Minimize Lactic Acid Build Up Within the Body
:

The reason why people ‘hit a wall’ during their run is because of the buildup of lactic acid in the blood stream- the faster you run, the more of this acid builds up. While this is a natural process of the body, there are ways to minimize this effect by properly training.

Utilize a Heart Rate Monitor
:
The general rule of figuring out what your maximum heart rate is to take the number 220 and subtract your age from that number.

The main point of training with a heart monitor is to ensure that you are training at the right intensities. As previously mentioned, training at the pace you actually plan on performing at is crucial to your success.
