Re: Shoe Question

I also have hobbit feet, and for me Saucony Kinvara works perfect.

Re: Maffetone Training

[quote="Joggernaut"] [quote="Gabe1"] My main problem with Canova, and why I am a bit negative, is because of his constant arguing that his athletes does not benifit from EPO. I think it is a bit shameful of him to say these things (in order to get rid of suspicion against his runners), especially wh...

Re: Maffetone Training

Is there any scientist that agrees with Canova on this? That EPO does not improve performance in the best Kenyans? Because I have seen what EPO does (if anyone remember Johann Muhlegg from Salt Lake City Winter Olympics totally destroying everyone by minutes in race after race despite having a usele...

Re: Maffetone Training

What I mean is a little bit that there are also many other great coaches that does not get much attention or credit. For example, how many times do you hear about Claudio Berardelli, the coach of Duncan Kibet and Martin Lel? He is at least as succesful as Canova, but as he says: "365 days a year, my...

Re: Maffetone Training

[quote="Spider Man"] The reason that Renato Canova is so highly regarded is because of his willingness to share and explain his training approach/method/philosophy ... His approach is distinctive but rooted in European training methods ... most notably the Italian School that spawned & developed num...

Re: Maffetone Training

[quote="shug"] For better or for worse, Canova tries to squeeze everything he can out of his athletes. This is also known as overtraining. If Canova was forthright, I guarantee he would agree. It is clear to me that he does not look at training from the lens of what will help an the athlete over his...

[quote="BoilerTom90"] [quote="Gabe1"] By the way: To race a marathon after just 4 months of training and 0 races would make my nerves go crazy.

Re: Maffetone Training

Here is what I don't get when it comes to Canova: He is regarded as the gurus of gurus. He is in Iten where he has the possibility to get the absolute top, top talents. He can basically choose whoever he wants. He speaks as he has all the answers how marathon training is done. But if you look at his...

Re: dilluh at the Twin Cities Marathon

Dilluh, congrats on a solid marathon effort. I don't know if Tinman base your workouts on time or distance (I think he uses different strategies for different runners), but if he uses time, I completely understand the problem with training in heat. If you always have to adjust the pace down because ...

Re: How long should your longest long run before a marathon be?

Thanks guys, all these thoughts just makes so much sense when you think about them. But I still cannot get out of my head that so many runners out there never even consider these things! It's amazing! Of course you are supposed to go into taper reasonably fresh, hungry for more etc, it's a no braine...

Re: How long should your longest long run before a marathon be?

Yes of course that makes sense. I guess you can also make the claim that the marathon is 42,2 km, no matter if you're an elite or if you run it in 5 hours. And there is probably a psychological advantage to know that you've covered 38 km in training without bonking. And I guess this is the main reas...
