Why what you're doing is wrong. You are not a marathon runner!
Evander Holyfield's trainer:
Holyfield used to regularly run slow long distance. People, especially on here, believe those runs help yyour heart rate during fights. The slow long runs help maintain heart rate during slow long run but after testing Holyfield's heart rate during 3 minutes on intense activity; it took far too long to return to normal.
DON'T BE A FOOL!

I wouldn't necessarily use Evander Holyfield as the best example when it comes to heart health, considering the troubles he had with his own ticker.
For a near prime athlete, he shouldn't have taken so long after hitting 180BPM to return to normal. That isn't the fault of his running! To me, that highlights a concerning issue......
A runner would be disgusted with that sort of level of recovery.
But even runners wouldn't advise long, slow runs often on a weekly routine; only once or twice depending on what event they were preparing for.
