Default Mr. McDonald....Steady State

Lyle, excellent series on Steady State aerobic training vs Intervals...Sorry, I'm a little late in posting this but I wanted to pass on that your series has been a great help to me.

About six months ago I made the decision to return to marathon canoe racing and have been working hard to re-build my base endurance levels. Your series helped greatly in developing a training program. I'm not a youngin so I can't afford the problems that come with over-training and/or injury. Got to make each shot count.

I'd like to see you actually define some training protocol at some time for the older athlete that combines endurance and speed training....(marathoners have to do some serious sprinting in specific situations.)

Thanks for the excellent work and clear writing...very refreshing. And, especially for your referral to Dr. Stephen Seiler's web site. Nice of you to pass that on to your readers...it's a gem.

If you look at most endurance training these days, it's actually pretty simple:

as much steady state as you can stand with the duration/intensity having mostly to do with individual recovery and time to train. IF you can train a lot, do it at lower intensities. If you can't train a lot, do it at higher intensities. Both work

a bit of LT work

a bit of speed work

studies of elites in various pure endurance sports invariably show stuff like

75-80% work below LT
maybe 10% right around LT
10% above LT (including anaerobic/sprint work)
