|Subject: ||RE: Duncan Kibet and James Kwambai : the role of Claudio Berardelli, and analysis of something new in training |
Thank you for sharing all of this information! Very valuable and interesting. What you have written about fueling is very close to my experience in preparing for marathons. To achieve the pace is one task, and to achieve the fuel capacity at that pace is another task entirely. I am fortunate to have a very good, thoughtful coach!
I have a question: have you experienced or tried with your athletes to do a shorter marathon pace run, maybe 12-14 km one day before a longer marathon pace effort, such as 26-30 km? The goal of such a workout would be to stimulate a glycogen depletion and fat burning, and also to provide a moderate stimulation to the systems...to prime the pump for the next day's workout.
I have found by doing this, I develop very good fuel capacity and efficiency, and get more running at marathon pace without mechanical breakdown (soreness, injury).
What are your thoughts on this approach? Thank you for your time. Grazie!
