Even though sprints and marathons both fall under the umbrella of running, the training methods to perform them are practically night and day. Just take a look at the bodies of elite sprinters and long-distance runners to see what we mean. But still, that doesn’t mean there isn’t overlap for what’s effective.
Contrary to what you might think, a series of endless, steady-state runs aren’t the fool-proof solution needed to help you shave time off your long run or crush your first marathon. Rather, by adding sprint work to your schedule, you can become a better, faster long-distance runner, all while logging fewer total miles.
