|Subject: ||RE: no interval work success?|
great advice from the great Geb:
Interviewer, a collegiate runner, informs Geb that he runs 110mpw and asks how much water Geb drinks as he feels dehydration relates to some complications he has in his legs.
First of all, I am surprised that you already run 110 mpw. Please try to do more speed work and use your mileage for recovery. Maybe you are running too fast at your long runs?
Or maybe you are not recovered from speed training before starting your next training session?
I usually try to drink two litres of water, next to the tea and juice that I use daily. In Athens, where it will be very hot, I might even drink three litres a day.
He also claims to do 3 track interval sessions a week, a long run, and two fartleks.
Apparently the greatest ever believe that most mileage should be at a recovery pace and that track workouts should be intense.
Though, he also claims that no runner should copy the training of another.
The link to the interview can be found on the Letsrun front page.
