The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing
He adheres to the principals of running easy which is relative at your aerobic pace. Your aerobic pace, according to Maffetone, is measured by heart rate and is found by taking age. If you have been training for two years or more with no injuries you can add 5 beats to the calculated rate. Logging as many miles as you can at this pace taking into account rest and gradual adaptation will build a strong base for racing season. During this base building period no anaerobic training or even tempo workouts should be performed. In fact, Maffetone says that weeks of anaerobic training is all that is necessary to see improvements in speed before competing.
