RE: my understanding
Rich (HRE), sjm -- good comments, and in keeping with what I've read (though I never quite plowed through all of Peter Coe's book). I never had five gears worth of speed myself, so I never worried too much about the fine points of Coe speedwork. I am sure that Seb Coe had an unusual gift of endurance for maintaining speed at the redline, but I always imagined that at that level he had to do more endurance work than was sometime let on. Kenny Moore alludes to it in his article on Coe (reprinted in Best Efforts).
Rich -- Enjoy Oz and NZ. How bad is winter down there?
