get over it
I'm kind of uninformed about the heavier scientific termonology here... I read that extensive endurance is roughly working HR's between 80-85% and intensive is roughly 85-90%. Now, these numbers were for relatively normal athletes; that means, non-elites. So, does 80-85% correspond to 2mmol and 85-90% correspond to 4mmol? From what I can tell, lactate values vary from individual to individual and fitness level to fitness level for the same individual. If that's true, Kenyans are probably higher (though Renato said that they often have lower lactate levels for whatever reason). Can anyone help me see how the marathon training Renato describes fits with this observation? Please, be nice, I'm just trying to figure it out and don't have the background most of these experienced coaches do.
