‘My mantra is “No junk miles”,’ says Alex Vi­ada, an ultradistance ath­lete and Iron­man who also com­petes in pow­er­lift­ing. ‘Ev­ery­one’s work­out needs to have a pur­pose.’ For any­one aim­ing to get to the fin­ish line, this means tak­ing out train­ing ses­sions that aren’t ac­com­plish­ing any­thing – those that are too slow to im­prove your anaer­o­bic base, but fast enough that they ham­per your re­cov­ery and cause over­train­ing.

PLAN­NING YOUR SES­SION
