Stress + Rest = Adaptation

With low-mileage running, the goal is not to follow a particular program, or schedule, but to optimize performance by maximizing adaptations to specific stress. Listen to your body, and focus on running workouts that are specific to your race.

Low-mileage running is a way of running based around key workouts, rather than building high weekly mileage. You’ll be exploiting your body’s recovery and adaptation mechanisms by running specific key workout, then allowing your body to recover.
