Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?

I am a young distance runner without much experience.

I have seen your other works where your athletes use long threshold work like 4x5K, but I am sure I am not capable of such programs as I do not run 20K of intervals.

I normally do sessions like 3x2K.

My 2 questions:

Can you provide 2-3 workouts directed that are particularly improving the lactate threshold 2 months before a racing period (cross-country)?

2nd question:

I have no measurements like lactate monitors, etc. How do your athletes monitor that they are staying below the threshold?

Is there some method that can be used to know this?

I thank you for your help if you are able to answer.
