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

In the case of Lopes that are short interval sets in between races (500m or 400m or 300m and rarely 200m). Lopes used to say that 200m brings him frequent injuries. But from times to times instead of short reps i mid-week point in beetween races he did 4X1200m Race Pace as a Control Test or 30min hard LT run - like a tempo. All starts with 30min easy warmups and ends with 10min easy cooldown.

Yes, the whole idea is to do less units of LTM workouts but "hard" Lactate Training Management (LTM) continuous runs - specific Lt runs (close to race pace) instead of easy LTM (identified with Anaerobic Thershold).

Besides lactic acid concentration that´s not very useful/accurate to determine the Lt pace or shape condition. The day that would buy the machine and you start using a lot that blood acid lactic concentration tests and mmol figures i guess that you would be more confuse than you are with no test use or you will think that you are training wright when you are training wrong. Just a my own idea.
The ggod idea is to pace LTM runs according race pace, as Renato said about Pace Support - those that are immediatley slower (in percent) to the RPTD - Race Pace Target Distance.
