Re: Alberto Salazar Training Philosophy

[quote="dilluh"] [quote="Gabe1"] [quote="dilluh"] If you stick a 5k time into Tinman's calculator you'll find that what Salazar says should be an easy run (5k+90s) lies somewhere between easy and moderate on the Tinman calculator. I guess that isn't too crazy but I think Kevin's comment is well-heed...

Re: Alberto Salazar Training Philosophy

Salazar coaches some of the best runners on this planet. There is a world of difference in what they can handle and what you and I can handle. Sure. Then teach this training approach only to the best runners. If you´re already doing high mileage and appropriate workouts then the next step in the tr...

Re: Running with Allergies

I have allergies, and have had it my entire life. Spring is always tough, no matter how many medicines I use. I found out quite late in life that I have allergy-asthma, and I now use Symbicourt inhaler (don't know if you have that in the States but it contains budesonide and formoterol). I think it ...

Re: Van Aaken vs. Tinman

Sure, genetics is very important off course. But I wonder more if Kenyans would run even faster if they would adapt some of that train low compete high, or eat a high fat low carb diet that Noakes advocates. I really doubt it. It is the same with Van Aakens ideas of restrict calories. It must mean t...

Re: Van Aaken vs. Tinman

Sounds almost like Van Aakens "low calorie"-philosophy would be something similar to what Noakes are talking about these days, all that "train low - compete high" stuff. A lot of easy aerobic training with low glycogen levels. But what is really the science behind that? Because in reality, the Kenya...

For example this guy: http://running.competitor.com/2014/01/n ... echa_93049

"He has a body built from trans-fats, corn syrup, and white flour, and whittled by 130-mile weeks."

Re: All the extra things

The diet question is interesting. I have read a few stories lately about very fast runners that basically eat all their meals at fast food restaurants, running 100 mile weeks and finishing well under 2:20 in the marathon. I think maybe that as long as you don't gain weight, make sure you fill up you...

Re: Physiology of easy runs versus recovery runs

[quote="monica"] It does take time, I only managed to learn it by using a heart rate monitor by setting the HR target zone at some really low number (still realistic though). Some subelite runners I've talked to recommended using 70% of MHR as the ceiling for easy days. Seems pretty reasonable to me...

Re: Physiology of easy runs versus recovery runs

Thanks for the reply. Yes you are probably right, by feel is probably the way to go. But I guess it also takes time to learn. The last years I have been running super hero work outs all the time, and so recovery runs have always been slow - because my legs were always totally dead. But now I am alwa...

Re: Physiology of easy runs versus recovery runs

[quote="dkggpeters"] What I find hard to believe is McMillan shows an easy pace range of 6:30 to 7:28 equating to a RPE of 2 to 4 for my marathon time.  I run my easy runs in the 7:15 to 7:30 range.  I in no way consider 6:30 a RPE of 4 and no where close to easy.  I would consider moderate as 6:47 ...
