So, they can use a percentage of lactate (may be 20%) as new source of energy, and this fact means not only that the average of speed for all the marathon can be faster than before, but also that THE INDEX OF RESISTANT resistant between different distances (for example, HM and Marathon) has the trend to become more close. If till now we spoke about a 5% of difference between the HM speed and the Marathon speed for a well trained athlete (5% of 1 hour in HM is 1:03:00 that is a marathon in 2:06:00), now we look for reducing this index to 4% (in the above case, 4% of 1 hour is 2:24, so 62:24 x 2 = 2:04:48).
If we are able to create for an athlete able running 59\' in HM (and now there are many) this level of specific endurance, we can have somebody able running in 2:02 in short time.

Here you refer the INDEX OF RESISTANCE. This is true for every distance run. But you Renato on another thread you say:

I say during my congresses or lecturers for IAAF, \"There are not events of RESISTANCE, but only events of SPEED, because in any case the winner is the fastest as average in the race.\"

Renato. In every distance run event, the prime one factor is SPECIFIC RESISTANCE what it means to delay the SPEED with a minimum of speed pace intensity decrease. This is whatīs SPECIFIC RESISTANCE really.

Of course SPEED and SPECIFIC RESISTANCE is what does makes faster performances, one without the other is not efficient. However THE NATURE of distance events takes SPECIFIC RESISTANCE as prime factor. Imagine that you have the speed of 9.58 of Usain Bolt the speedy one in the world, but from 800m to the marathon Usain speed is useless without specific resistance. However with low speed than 9.58 but with specific resistance you can win to Usain every distance run.

I guess you might change your sentence \"There are not events of RESISTANCE...\" to this one: \"Every distance run event is of RESISTANCE, because the main factor that able the winner to be fastest in distance events is SPECIFIC RESISTANCE\".

Donīt you agree ?
