The More is More Paradox of Training and Life. If I told you that less is more, you would probably believe me, right? Unfortunately, most people’s brains think more is more. It just makes sense. The more you work the more returns you get out. The hedonic treadmill in its most purest form.

As a runner or even in your career/school life you work hard you get the results.

From understanding the law of diminishing returns to exploring historical perceptions of effort and reward, we're going on a journey that's part facts, part theories and 100% something you need. 

We'll debunk myths with a fun real-world example, balance the scales of risk versus reward, and argue why, sometimes, less really is best. Expect to learn about focusing on higher output, not just more input, and why this approach might just transform your training, and life, for the better.

Stick around till the end, and I promise you, you'll leave with a fresh perspective on training and life that could change the way you run, work, and live. Let's find that sweet spot together – the one where less effort leads to more gains, and life feels just a bit lighter.
