In praise of slow!

I’ve written before about the case for running short distances.

But also, there’s a case for running those short distances slowly.

See Slow runners live longer.

“In short, the ideal sweet spot for jogging and gaining full benefit was 2 to 3 times per week. The optimal speed was slow, and the optimal weekly distance? 1 to 2.4 miles!”
