Of course, as the media is wont to do, there were some simplifications in the article. Ritzenhein never really got away from training at 5000-10,000m type speeds. It seems like too many marathon runners have not followed a patient progression to the marathon distance that included a significant period of speed development for anything much faster than marathon pace.
