Re: Book Update

Barney, Tinman has been really generous and provided loads of great info on this site for free if like me you cant afford $100 a month, but in a nutshell I think tinman would advise; TT (40ish mins total) and CV(20ish mins total) workouts up until race day minus 8 weeks, then for the last 8 weeks MP...

Re: need help.

1500m is an aerobic event, so you need to train more like a distance runner. 1. build up to running 1 hour everyday and 1.5 hours on a sunday at a relaxed effort. 2.on two of the days where you run easily for 1 hour mix in one of: 30-45 minutes of fast relaxed running, this is a tinman tempo at 5k p...

Re: Marathon Help to Crack 2:30

I'm afraid I'm going to disagree on the marathon been more in the mind than the body. I'd say the capability\capacity to achieve a certain time is 99.99% physical attributes,however I will agree that the factors thy determine the probability of whether or not you fulfil that capability ON THE DAY ha...

Re: Max Vo2 Info please?

Pretty sure ive read here before: somewhere between 8 and 18 minutes worth of reps. Depending on your fitness between 30 seconds and 3 minutes long with equal to double time recovery. used for races less than 70 minutes.longer than that it will do you more harm than good. The faster you are the more...

Tinman and AP- if Yuki Kawauchi has neglected all paces faster than CV in his training for the las...

Re: Faster Intervals

on the flip side has anyone ever seen runners improve after switching from a tempo/threshold dominated programme to one that was more focused on 5k pace or faster reps.im guessing you would need real high mileage for this...ie frank shorter or deek.

Re: Intervals eating up Aerobic Base

ATimmins- Very good run, well done. I think you need to relax, stop questioning every minutiaeĀ  and enjoy your running more. It seems to me that you find it difficult to follow a course of action for very long before you question it. experimenting is good but i think you should give each approach a ...

Re: The Marathon Thread

yeah, its 5 down to 1 miles, i took a minute easy for each mile of effort though. schebo- that is exactly where i blew up in the only marathon i did where i didnt train for it properly (i.e i trained like a 10k runner with a long run that was easy). Not saying thats the case with you as i seem to re...

Re: question for AP405

so if im understanding correctly the mileage wont increase the pace or power at a particular intensity,say lt2,but may improve the efficiency of the metabolic processes that produce that power to allow you to run at that given pace for longer.and im guessing if joe wants to increase the power,say at...

Thankyou Tinman and AP405 for your lengthy replies. It seems the answer for joe bloggs is maybe,maybe not.and if it does work its very difficult to pin point the reason why it worked when all of the scientifically measurable (lab) parameters of exercise science show no reason why it should...theres ...
