RE: My Attempt to respond to oasis' request
Hard to believe Moorcroft ran that many races... I have 10-week training leading up to his WR 5000; that should be the hight of his track season and he ran, including low-key local road races, 5 races in 10 weeks. That means he would have to run some 35+ races in the rest of 42 weeks. It seems like NZ runners run lots of low-key road races as a part of training; whether you may call them tempo runs or threshold runs or whatever. Ron Clarke ran lots of races simply because he enjoyed them. This might be the case for Moorcroft. But 60 sure sounds way too many. This should certainly NOT be a good example for young athletes to follow unless he/she is so damn well disciplined that some (most of) races will NOT be run too competitively.
