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

Yes, my comment concerned only KnutK's workouts at the track during preseason/during season.

Secondly, "near specific race speed" = track training.

I appologize that I was not clear concerning "runining fast as often as possible" = training near anaerobic threshold.

Of course, this may even be hard for top runners, and may even be impossible to carry out every day. However, if the body respond and can handle it it may be better than jogging.

I have been in Kenya every year for the last 12 yrs. I have stayed from 7 days to 9 months.

During my stays in Kenya, I have carried out different studies of the Kenyans' training. We have performed measurements, both during training and in the laboratory, both at sea level and at altitude.

Kenyans carry out 2-3 race specific track seasons per weeks. Normalluy this starts after the national cross-country championship. When the Kanyans run slow easy runs, then it is really easy. However, it is not true that rest of their training consist of easy exercise. They often start easy, but increase their speed progressively during the session, running the last part relatively fast, near their anaerobic threshold (blood lactate <3 mmol, measured with the Lactate Pro Lactate Meter).
