Subject: RE: Soup to Nuts - Letsrun Train Me
Euro - interesting that you say 20% of the fibers are used. I've always thought of 30%, but not sure where I got that number from. The important thing I guess is to realize that only a small percentage of available fibers are used at any time.
Also, let me illustrate a different point by taking the example of the "runner's knee" injury. The main training I use to combat runner's knee is the simple body weight squat. A set of 3 or 4 is enough to stimulate some blood flow to the knee area for a while. A set of 10 will do that also and probably stimulate some minor muscle growth as well. A set of 30 will definitely stimulate a growth response. In my view, if we are healthy, the optimum plan for the main purpose of injury prevention is:
1 set of 10 squats once or twice daily
a set of 3 or 4 squats done every couple of hours
Just my view on it, based on my perceived knowledge of blood flow and all that.
One of the most prestigious things about being a runner is that the sport cannot be performed at a high level without years of training. You have to pay your dues. The initial foundation must be built first or the system will eventually stress and break. Years away from running are like years spent in jail. By trying to make a comeback, we are asking for parole and the next step in our sentence is a year in the "half-ass" house. :D
