thank you for your kind contributions.
I am a little confused about these comments and what you mean by it:
"In the history of methodologies, there were many Coaches and Scientists that usedvery long run for the CAPILLARIZATION. The first was Van Aaken, great coaches as Frassinelli from France used to start every season with 3 hours of long run at 5.0 per km (Jazy, WR holder of 2000m). But look at the value of the performances.
Already in 1964, somebody (Snell) was able running 800 in 1.44. In 1979 Seb Coe ran 1.42.33. Now, nobody is able to run so fast. The Kenyan record of 800 is 1.42.24 from Sammy Koskei in 1984.
In 1500m, 30/25 years ago we had a lot of European (not TOP champions) able running under 3.32 (Wessinghage, Hudak, Deleze, Abascal, Gonzalez) and somebody under 3.30 (Auita, Cram, Coe himself, Maree). Athletes from GBR able running 3.33 (Robson, Moorcroft, Rowland) had to find fortune in other events.
In 2008 for the first time in 30 years NOBODY RAN UNDER 3.31.
Instead, in 5000&10000m we continue to improve the best average, and in HM and Marathon everything changed."
Why do you think nobody is improving that much over the shorter distances?
Am I correct in assuming that you are saying that the improvements in 10k and Marathon are due to greater SPECIFIC RACE focused training.
Why are we not improving over the shorter distances? And you mentioned Snell - didn't he run massive volumes, upwards of 100 MILES per week, and lots of long hard running?
One last question - would you recommend a 10k road running follow basically similar type volume to Marathon?
