The secret isn’t a secret anymore: you don’t have to run a lot of miles to train for a marathon.
More and more endurance athletes are realizing that old training methods are outdated and inefficient, and intense CrossFit Endurance sessions are now helping athletes accomplish their goals without the endless training miles that punish the body.
Offering more proof, three athletes from RAW Training in Pennsylvania talk about their experience in the 2010 Boston Marathon.
“We jokingly say in our marathon group that no matter what mile we’re on, no matter how hard it gets in the race, there’s no mile that will be harder than a treadmill or speedwork Tabata,” Dr. Harmon says. “And even today in a ridiculously hard course, that was still the case.”
