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

You are right. Tim Hutchings did not strictly follow Horwill's advice. He has been quoted as saying that he would not have survived has he done all of Horwill's workouts. Some British posters shared that. I knew it to because twice I saw his training schedule listed in the 1980s. One time it was his xcountry training. He was running 90 miles per week and doing session of 6 x 1000m at 2:36 per rep and one session of 600m hill repeats. This was prior to his silver medal at the World XCountry Championships. The second time it showed 86 miles for the week and he had done 4 x 1 mile and a session of 600s and 300s. That was it. The rest were 10-12 mile runs at a modest pace.

Brendan did 3 x 1 mile in 4:10 just prior to his 7:35 world record for 3000m.
