"I think I ran him too hard in a workout 2 days before" - Alberto Salazar
Why would it be beneficial to do 6 x (300, 200) averaging about 3:50 mile pace 48 hours before a mile WR attempt?
You can't reap the fitness benefits of an interval workout in 2 days. I will only cause residual fatigue. Why not just do some strides or a few 200s at race pace for sharpening/neuromuscular memory?
I think a workout like would best be places 5 or 6 days before the race. Discuss.
