RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
I cannot speak about the training of Gabriele Rosa, because never we spoke together regarding the particulars of his system. I can only say that I hold him in high esteem under technical and organizational points of view. He was the first coach to understand the big potentiality of Kenyans for the Marathon, and gave them a basic phylosophy that is still very appreciated. He was also able to involve a big Company like FILA (and now NIKE) in a project that, at the end, regarded about 400 runners.
Another thing : I'm absolutely sure that he is FULLY HONEST in his training, without using any type of drug. He has a scientific and medical approach, using many tests and allowed supports, and is able to provide in short time when there is some injury that, normally, brings the athlete to lose one year.
He is essentially a marathon coach, also if, in his career, had top results also on track (with world records from Tergat and Wilson Boit Kipketer). But Marathon is his main interest.
Being a man looking at the future, he is now planning to organize something in China. We'll see in the future, but it's sure that dr. Rosa is one of the most important personages of long distances world.
