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

You are correct that sports science may be behind (a question that naturally comes to mind is why did the scientists change their recommendations??).

I view it this way: Coaches and runners are the experimentalists and sports scientists are the theorist. The latter should be able to explain _why_ it works and how. Then they need to focus on long-term development and not on short-term studies.

I recall you were working on your PhD a couple of years ago.
Have you finished it?

Cheers,

Jens
