RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
But what about Marius Bakken, he did reach a very good time extremly fast with big amounts of LT-training, but he is still able to improve with LT-training.

20y: 14.xx
21y: 13.22
22y: 13.11
23y: 13.09
24y: 13.50?
25y: 13.33
26y: 13.06

Of course 16 secs in 5 years isn't a lot, but still an improvement.

Should his improvement look like this instead?

20y: 14.xx
21y: 13.50
22y: 13.40
23y: 13.30
24y: 13.20
25y: 13.15
26y: 13.10
27y: 13.08
28y: 13.06

I think it's better with a fast progression, why wait till you are 35 to run your best race? It's better to stay at the top longer than just for some years in the end of the career. Look at Bekele did he do the wrong thing doing a lot of LT-training?? He wont progress much over the next years but he still has 3 WRs, and many medals. A runner might have 5-10 years at the top, and it's a waste of time not to do LT-training. It's better to get professional early than late, you will go to more championships and get more sponsors. Is it worth to MISS 2 olympic games due to slow progression?. Haile doesn't have progression but still an incredible career, don't you agree? I rather have the progression Gebs career over Carlos Lopes career, that's for sure! And you never know what will happen in the future, injuries, sickness, accidents etc. You shouldn't waste your time.
