Pretty interesting stuff.  Personally, at my current level of fitness I would need a bit of a taper.  My legs feel heavy and slow after a couple of good weeks with little rest or “easy” runs.  My best training runs come after several days of relatively hard work followed by an easy day then a rest day.  I should really see how this affects my racing before I look at using it to further build my fitness.
