Threshold Pace? (Read 2200 times)

    Probably either too hard or too long. 

     

     

     

    this has definitely been my problem

        You are a very nice guy and you provide lots of help to people on this board.  You are also very sensitive, which is a fine thing too.  But you DO kind of fuck with people from time to time.  Intentionally at times.  Unintentionally at times.  And when you feel like you have been fucked with (which was unintentional this time on my part, but I accept that this is how it felt), you don't really like it.

         

        So consider me fucked off, but remember this next time someone feels a little poked by your posts.

         

        Ah, I still fondly remember my first "You can fuck off" from Jeff.  It's truly a badge of honor that very few earn.  Welcome to the club, srlopez!

            Y'all are funny.


            Since I'm feeling bad about being an asshole this morning, I'll link to this article, which places threshold running in context, talks about the different thresholds, the paces associated with them, and when and how to incorporate them into your training.

            And, just as a way of defending my view, a scientific reflection on the relative uselessness of the concept of lactic threshold.

                perhaps you'll find meaning in another absurd pastime

                  Is that the conclusion of a new medical study?

                       Hey

                        More good discussion over at Tinman's site. It is healthy discussion from many runners focusing on differing paces at differing distance or time. It all makes sense. I think slower tempo runs are great once per week if you have a faster type of work out also within the week.  I tend to do some slower tempo work within my long run and then do 10K paced reps finishing w/ some faster striders or 200s all within another mid week semi long run to give me two quality work outs a week. This work for most runners. If your mileage is higher, 3 quality work outs a week is reasonable assuming the other days are easy.

                          Here's an interesting and readable thread from letsrun that also problematizes the idea of training according to lactate threshold or specific, "precise," or clearly defined aerobic zones.

                              Maybe you're running too hard. Or not wearing enough shoes.

                              It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
