RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
Yes 2:00 mins rest or even 3:00 sometimes. The workouts take a long time. I usually have my girls do them during a 70 min run. Full recovery, max intensity, great results. It's time well spent.
As for circuits on some other college girls I am helping out with (not my "official" athletes). Last year one ran 5:57 for the mile. We worked on strength in the form of hill sprints and did some circuits that were watered down from what Renato gave us. Everything is progressive throughout the build up and through the season. We also worked at 80% of a goal mile pace for specific endurance. She opened her season with 5:25 and the next week ran the 600,800 double in 1:40 alone (33,33,34) and 2:23 (36,37,36,34) with about 15 mins rest between the races. Now these aren't world class but the improvment is very solid. The other girls I am working with are similarly running better then they ever have.
I would give the credit to this thread and the other one by Antonio awhile back. THANKS
