I really honestly thought Noguchi would win Athens Olympic marathon (Jonas, remember I called you the day before the race?). It is because of the course, type of training she was doing . . .

Nobby -- I'm curious. What type of training did Noguchi (and Takahashi, for that matter) do? I'm guessing it is similar to the Japanese men with lots of long and LONGer runs with some long speedwork every 10 days or so. But the Japanese (women in particular) have been so successful, I thought it worth asking. I know the Japanese have used Lydiard approaches often, but do they incorporate a specific hill phase?
