One of Jack’s guiding principles as he says here is to find out “how little can you do and still achieve what you’re trying to achieve.” This is a key part of Jack’s philosophy which puts a huge emphasis on keeping athletes healthy. If the purpose of your workout is to run easy then run at the slowest pace possible where you still get the maximum benefit for the purpose of the workout. That’s why his vdot method is such a great tool for all runners.
