Aerobic running is done during long runs. Aerobic means “in the presence of oxygen”. This is the type of running you do when you feel “slow” and comfortable. When running aerobically, your muscles can get enough oxygen from the blood to process the energy in the cells (burning fat in most cases). The minimal waste products produced during aerobic running can be easily removed, with no lingering build-up in the muscles. Speed training gets you into the anaerobic zone: creating an oxygen debt . Anaerobic running involves going too fast or too long for you, on that day. At some point in the workout, when you reach your current limit, the muscles can’t get enough oxygen to burn the most efficient fuel, fat. So they shift to the limited supply of stored sugar: glycogen. The waste products from this fuel pile up quickly in the cells, tightening the muscles and causing you to bre...
