Detraining is the reduction of performance that happens after the cessation of training and is reflected by anatomic and physiologic changes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of reduce training on cardiovascular parameters in distance runners. Many studies showed reduce of VO2 max and anaerobic threshold after detraining. On the other hand, only one study examined the effect of detraining on running economy and did not observe a decline.
