RE: 2 kinds of runners. Which are you?
Good questions here, Antonio. Lemme cut them into little pieces and take them one by one...

I can see that in later Phases you use what I term, “intermittent runs” or “intermittent workouts” ...

Just as a kind of rhetorical reply, I would think it is impossible to train for 800m-10k (and even longer) without some kind of intermittent training going on, no?

I would think it's a given that you need to hit race pace (and faster) at some point in your prep, and do so for a significant amount of time/distance. I would think the optimal (and perhaps only) way to do that would be to do it in the form of "interval" or "repetition" training. How can a guy run a total of (say) 1600m at 800m race pace without breaking the session down into chunks?

So I wouldn't think you were surprised to see such training. HR training cannot guide everything you do... and I'll explain why in a later post because I don't have enough time to sit and type a long reply at the moment.

So I'll slice and dice your last post and get back to you in "intermittent" replies!
