RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
I post these in series as I find them:


From Sherlock Holmes:

"In 1999, Christopher Koskei was not in the team till last minute, also if Kenya could put in steeple 4 athletes because Wilson Boit Kipketer had a Wild Card because World Champion 97. So, Christopher trained with me in S. Moritz for two months, without going in Residential Camp. He had also to compete in Military Ch, only one week before World Championships. He went to Seville with a ticket payed by the sponsor Puma, not by Kenyan Federation. He ran 14 races of steeple during last 41 days before WCh, as already he had contracts signed with organizers. So, it was very hard for me to manage his training, but at the end of every thing, HE WAS THE ONLY GOLD MEDAL FOR KENYA."

I would love to see what Koskei's training looked like before the Championships. 14 races in 41 days? As I remember it, Renato said that Shaheen, before joining his camp, used the schedule Renato gave his brother Christopher Koskei to improve the World Junior record in the steeple. How is it that Shaheen can improve the record using training designed for someone racing 14 times in 41 days? That's more than 2 races every week for 6 weeks straight. Insane. "
