Subject: RE: @Renato Canova; Physiologically explanation of 'new' turbo diesels like Mutai, Mosop, Radcliffe...
Antonio, during the Summit in Charlotte in January, I produced some slides. The first was :
"There are no events of RESISTANCE, but of speed only, because in any case the winner is the fastest in the race..."
The second was :
"The fast among athletes having the same ENDURANCE. So, the key in training is to enhance the SPECIFIC ENDURANCE".
How always I ask to coaches / athletes looking mainly for speed, "what can you do with your speed if are not able to stay with the leaders till the end ?".
So, it's obvious that, if you are an athlete able running 10000m in 28' and you are in WCh, your first goal is to become able running in 27'30" or less, not to be able to finish fast, because your fast finish can move you from position 20 to position 19... and this is not important, but if you are able to run 27'30" (also using a last slow lap) may be you can be in top 10. And, on the other side, if you run a competition in 29' with athletes fast in the final having 29' as PB, you are so much fresh that can win in any case the race. Sop, speed is a false problem.
Of course, I fully agree with you : in training, the priority is to improve the SPECIFIC ENDURANCE. This is the cake, every other thing is the cherry on the cake.
