How should you increase the quantity and quality of your training, while maintaining the rest and recovery needed for full adaptions to take place ?.

Interesting question, I guess most people follow some kind of training schedule taken from a book or website and have a particular goal or race to aim for.

Gradually.

And listen to your body.

If you are tired have an easy day. Generally don't increase quantity and intensity together. One or the other would be fine.

Your profile says:
""Just started a period of 10 100 mile + weeks""

I wonder if this question arose before or after that status update?

Got something to say?
