that definitly makes more sense to divide a focus over course of years not just one. even though some coaches want the all american status now and not willing to wait.
how do you structure tempo/ aerobic work? i mean the old quesiton for the multi eventer how much is actually needed. i have found benifits while in comp. season keeping the tempo at 3600m for the week and running them in 100m or 200m segements. and my time for the 1500m has not really changed (4:42). this is apposed to another theory i have been subject to that you need lots of lactic work and to run workouts like 4x 600m and 5x 500m at times.
wouldnt the person's concern for being in aeorbic shape be devolped by the SE II from earlier workouts in the year? for a short to long program.
