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

question for Renato wrote:

Would it be acceptable to put sprints at the end of a pace workout?

For example, if you run 5x 2000m with 3 minutes between.

Would it be acceptable to do 10 hill sprints after this?

Or would this be counterproductive, and would it be better to do the sprints another day.

Thanks very much.


Renato gave some programs of Shaheen and Kwalia and they mix short hill sprints with long intervals for "strength endurance."

For instance, Shaheen last June did 8 x 800m averaging 2:01 and between each repetition he did 4 x 60m short sprint uphill (2:00 rest after 800, 2:00 rest after each hill sprint).

That means total 8 x 800m, 32 x 60m uphill sprint.

Sounds like a rough session.
