Variety vs Specificity (Training)

Should we be training with a lot of variety (different speeds, shoes, cross training, strength training)? Or should we get really good at running on one surface, in the same shoes & not deviate?

Brodie dives into the pros and cons of both strategies so you can self-reflect & come up with your own decision.

To finish off, Brodie fires away 6 questions you should ask yourself:

  1. What type of runner do you want to be?
  2. What has your injury history been like in the past?
  3. Do you enjoy variety?
  4. Are you spreading yourself too thin?
  5. Should I be upping my specificity close to race time?
