RE: Sub 1:50 800m Training
canova just misapplies the emphasis on specific versus general aerobic training for the 800m. His thinking is stuck because he has never experienced it himself as a runner. All the brilliant thinking in the world (which he clearly possesses) is not worth squat if it has been been specifically applied and one can only specifically apply it when one has experienced it himself. So please stop quoting Canova on the 800m because it is just not correct. Personally the only people i am interested in regarding the 800m is Lydiard, Cerutty and to a lesser extent Coe (although Harry Wilson was also great i just don't have as much info on him)
regarding general training methodology i really like Canova - he is very clear. (i hope that mitigates any bashing :))
