along with what you guys are saying (that Lydiard says)… I remember reading (might have been from one of the reports of his last tour) that BESIDES your base mileage ‘at a steady pace’ he also suggested that you get in ‘as many miles at a slower pace’ (like a jog?) as possible and that this would help with recovery and aid building the mitocondria…

if I find the link I’ll post it later…

Rita, maybe I did a poor job but that’s at least what I was attempting to refer to with the following comment I made at the end of my previous post:

On top of this, add as much running as you can at whatever pace you want to run, just make sure these runs do not affect the duration of the key runs, although they may have a slight effect on the paces of those runs. These secondary runs are where “run as slow as you like” would come in.
