You awaken with enough time one morning to run a short run but want to run longer. Your calendar balks.
Should you run 2-runs today? One early, and one later to experience that longer endurance experience, and add some mileage to your body’s training base?
If you are cleared to run for fitness and sport, why not, so long as you are not over-training in the larger context of your training days.
And this is not only true for running. Other training modes may be mixed, matched, and doubled. Again, don’t over-train, but do adapt and excel. The experience boosts training and performance confidence, in part because few people make room to train twice in a day, or few seize the intervals as discussed in the ‘Interval Farming’ chapter in Farm Your Training Day.
