RE: My Attempt to respond to oasis' request
Tinman:

You seem to know quite a bit of statistics... So according to your story on Moorcroft, are you saying that his coach thought it's a good idea to do long reps (vs. short reps) if you run a lot of races? And are you saying Moorcroft was doing long reps with plenty of recovery or, according to John Anderson's philosophy, taking short recovery to "slow him down"? And lastly are you saying long recovery prevents you from premature peak or short recovery? I would think long recovery would let you run faster and therefore peak quicker.

I might have commented the same story about upping the mileage. Quaxie cut 2 or 3 seconds off from his 1500m when he moved up the distance to 5000 and upped his mileage. Lorraine PRing in 1500 after she started running marathons. Maybe it only happens to the Kiwis. But then again, there's Shibui's 10000m national record (beating Deena by a couple of seconds)...
