"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009
Ricky —our ability to perform up to our physiological potential in a race is determined by whether or not we truly psychologically believe that what we are attempting is realistic. Anton Krupicka

The Logic of Long Distance
SO if my lactate threshold is 7:14 (where did you find that out?), then what is the difference between doing 4/5 mile at this pace, and doing it in 1 mile stages with recovery time in between?
I have heard good things about resting in between but surely this is no good as this is not simulating how it is going to be in a race.
