RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
Thank you for the reminder; I have read both of those in the past and I do not think it explains the situation fully. That is some fantastic training, but as I mentioned, there are a number of 5,000 and 10,000m runners all over the world who train at a high level and consistently and never before have I ever heard of a 28:00 10K runner taking such a gargantuan chunk out of his time. I do not think there is any improvement to compare that to on perhaps any level, especially the elite level.

Even Gebrselassie's spectacular WR in 1995 in Zurich when he ran 12:44 and broke Kiptanui's record of 12:55 does not compare. That is 11 seconds in a 5K; we are talking 99 seconds in a 10K.
