RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
Haile has run 26:22 and 27:00 on the road so running 2x5k in 13:10-20 seems much more reasonable than running 4x1200m at sub 3k-pace + 4x800m at (sub) 3k-pace + 4x400m at sub-1500m pace...and all that at 1200m altitude what makes it still 1-2secs harder...

why would someone who can finish the workout above do such an easy workout:

1000-2:28
800-1:56
400-55
300-40
200-25

even when he is dying...that must be a joggingworkout, only 1/4th of the volume.
Komen ran at SEA-Level:1600-3:54,1200-2:53,800-1:54,400-55...thats 4km total, you really think that Gebre who is slower than Komen at 1500-3k and equal at 5k can do 9,6km at high altitude at about the same pace...?
Gebre is a 3:31/7:25/12:39/26:22 man, great runner but not superman.
