RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
John Andrews:

I am guessing that Renato was mixing his race distances. In previous posts, Renato has discussed using paces in the 2-5% faster than marathon race pace for marathoners and 3-5% faster than half-marathon pace for 5k-10k runners. I think this is a simple mistake due to writing quickly and in a language that is not his primary one.

The concept, as I took it, is not different in context than that of JK, Dr Daniels, or me. Simply put, running some longer tempo runs or long reps at a modest pace (near half marathon race pace or the equivalent (I said 8% slower than 5k pace, for example) is one good possiblity. Doing reps at 12k to 10k pace is another good possibility for improving LT.
