Jake Smith on Training with the World’s Best

Another major lesson from Jake’s time in Uganda was to drop the intensity of the recovery runs, and to prioritise recovery overall. During his time there he got caught up in wanting to explore the area and in addition to the ~180km he was running each week, he would also go out on long walks through the hills with his girlfriend Katie.
