This is true, yet in my observations those same plans are not likely to take the runner anywhere near 80 mpw.  This is one reason why I have far more respect for the Hansons, they are willing to stand behind something that will likely not be popular or what many are willing to hear.  Of course, their record in training people for the marathon is as good as anyone (up there with Bill Squires) in the US in the modern era, and is certainly superior to that of the authors of the mass-consumption training guides.
