RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
"makes sense" ??? I am not trying to be rude, but it doesn't matter if it makes sense or not to you. It matters what was done.

"But when Peter Snell tells me that he spoke to Seb and this is the conclusion that he came away with -- that's good for me. "

That may be, but I will go by direct quotes from Seb himself ( in MANY interviews I read him directly say that he trained in the 45-65 mile per week range, NO MORE), and Frank Horwill, and Marius' own conclusions based on looking at Seb's logs and talking to Seb directly. From all of that, even if one adds in some warm-up mileage possibly not counted, one can only conclude that during base training phases, Seb might have been in the 70's some weeks, but was generally below 70.

The 80-100 mile weeks (#'s bandied about by you and others several times) just did not happen from everything we know. And if he happened to run a week or 2 in his life in that range, it is inconsequential. We are talking about base training AVERAGE weeks. And again, for the last and final time, I will state that the FACTS point to a range of 50-65 on average over his career during these base months.

You disagree, fine. Let's move on until someone has some CONCRETE facts to prove either one of us right/wrong.
