I’ve read that for a trained individual that it takes 30 minutes minimum to create a training response in the body from a hormonal level. I would imagine though that say walking your dog for 10-20 minutes in the evening after a hard morning workout would contribute to recovery time though.
In strength training you often hear the adage “volume is volume” based on a few studies the last decade where equated volume of weight training over 30% of 1RM lead to similar gains.
Is this true for endurance training too? For example you have the base period “fill in” hours in the book, meaning 50% of the volume which is supposed to be recovery or zone 1 work, but you just do that spread out and when you can. If you do that as 10 minute blocks where you hardly break a sweat, but end up doing 50% of your training time this way, would that have the same effect as doing it in 1 hour sessions?
Meaning you keep the same pace, and you break the 50% max HR barrier for the 10 minutes, but you only do 10 minute sessions.
