“No pain, no gain”, “Running slowly makes for a slow runner” and “Go hard or go home” sum-up the poor strategies we instinctively follow when training and racing. Our brains tell us to fuel before running, drink when thirsty, remove clothing when we are hot, stop when we feel pain, stretch when we have a ‘tight’ muscle and to be well rested before a race. Are any of these good strategies for optimizing performance? A slow physiologist trying to get faster considers the evidence and conducts some experiments.
