I have been running for about a year now and loving it. I never realized the importance of base running. I started to follow your "runnning for weight loss program", as I would like to lose a few pounds. When would I implement "steady state" running in that schedule? There's tempo, interval, easy and long runs...
Answer by Dominique:
Thx for your running training question. I guess you are referring to my page about running for weight loss
What I was trying to do there is to put together a sample week with the basic ingredients for losing weight:Regular Exercise, i.e. lots of easy runningLong RunsSome intense sessions
You can play a lot with that sample program. If you have trouble fitting all the different elements into the one week, then maybe don't do a 7-day program in which you try to fit all the different types of running, but work with a 14-day or 21-day program.
So one week you use the sample week as shown on the page. The next week week you could replace a tempo run by a steady-state run. The other week you could replace an interval session by a steady-state run. The fourth week you'd return to the sample week as shown on the page, etc.
