RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
It's of sure accettable to put sprints after a workout, but my advice is not to use this system like normal system of training. I prefer to put sprints uphill after long run (after aerobic training, not involving too much fast fibres) also if some time I put sets of very short sprints (for example, 6 x 60m uphill) between one interval and another, when I go for long intervals (4 x 3000m + 1 x 1000m with 6 x 60m sprints among each one).
Anyway, everything is possible. The most important thing is to think that is important what you do, not what you don't do. So, respecting a good balance in training, you can use the biggest percentage of training in aerobic way, because the intensity is lower and you don't need long recovery, and, when intensity is higher, you can reduce the number of workouts. Training is like a pyramid, the big base is aerobic, then, increasing the speed, you go for less time and have to use with less frequency this type of workouts. Different is the situation of short sprints, that, not provoking high lactate, have only a neuromuscolar mean. You can go often for this type of workout, without any problem and without any interference with other type of training. This is the main type of training for the biomechanical system of an athlete, but don't forget that the endurance (specific or general) is something regarding the bioenergetical and enzymatic system.
