Subject: RE: @Renato Canova; Physiologically explanation of 'new' turbo diesels like Mutai, Mosop, Radcliffe...
Yes, this is a detail that is not always captured in our publication of the logs.
I was on a number of runs with BR and others and sometimes only instinctively as if at play, we would drop the pace. Nothing calculated just working harder.
Is the intensity and duration longer and harder for todays marathoner?
The intensity for BR especially, came from all the races that he ran. His "racing" seems to me to be replaced by todays athlete very calculated "workout session"
Today's marathoner does not compete anywhere near as often, at other disatnces or at marathons.
BR did not need to do really intense work on the track to cover all the bases.[/quote]
Good point; BR raced about every two weeks that year, and I'd say that a 48-minute ten miler qualifies as a hard session. Perhaps the difference lies in part in better planning -- and not working a full-time job (No teaching! Yea!rah!rah!) on top of a 30-mile day. Thanks.
