RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
I am not Renato, however I think that I could be of help here....

to improve lactate threshold in the preparatory period one should do the following:

Run aerobic every day with on long run of at least 90:00 each week. When this long run becomes relatively easy you are now ready do start training lactate threshold.

Key workouts are as follows:

1. 2000M trial: which will determine the key paces once every 4-6wks.

2. Reps of 10-20:00 @ 2000M pace + 1:30-2:00 once a week. Try to accumulate a total of at least 40:00 of such work.

For you this may look like this: 4X 1.5-2mi, with 400M RE

3. Reps of 4-8:00 @ 2000M pace + 1:00-1:30 once a week. Try to accumulate at total of at least 20:00 of such work.

For you this may look like this 3X 2000M, with 400M RE

Finish off each of these workouts with 6-8X 100M strides and then warmdown.

Good luck...
