6. The great use of properly place aerobic intervals, fartleks, etc to increase aerobic development.
Is this something new???
The rest of your post makes sense.[/quote]
I know that fartleks and intervals workouts are not new. What I'm suggesting is that many people now are realizing that aerobic development is not just Lydiard type long runs, but a combination of things. Many distance runners still do a couple of hard interval workouts a week and go on distance runs the rest of the days, but many people thinking outside the box realize that the body may recover better while doing intervals that are somewhat less than "hard".
