RE: Mihaly Igloi
There is no way I can give my views on the answers to your questions in the time or space I have today.
Coach Igloi based his workouts on two leg actions. Workouts would be a mixture of the two leg actions each of which had 6 tempos. I have never seen those two leg actions described in writing. I always feel that by using two leg actions one develops stronger muscles. The actions depended on how one moved the femur. I would think that one of those who coaches strictly by Igloi's methods could provide a definition.
The six tempos are easy, fresh, good, hard, very hard and all out. I have heard hard defined by a distance runner as race pace. I will have to search my logs tosee if I was ever told to run all out.
I am very slow (57.6 440) with mainly slow twitch muscles. I did not thrive on this much all fast work but did I give it a chance? Coach needed 6 months to get me in shape. I was not there long enough for the future to come and I went into marathons with dead legs. I did better with 75 miles week of mostly relaxed running. Granted I do not think I had as many injuries as I had previously in a Winter climate where I also had done a fair amount of speed work.
Please remember that Coach Igloi had great success and his athletes set a great many world records. The three biggest names from his Hungarian club of world record breakers were Tabori, Iharos and Rozsavologyi. In the US he had Schul, Beatty, Grelle and others.
