Most Can Run ….. Many Can Race ….. The Best Win! By John H. Anderson
Key Factors in 800 /1500m Training 1.Anaerobic Power – LTRS 2.VO2 Max / Aerobic 3.Running Economy – Lactic Acid tolerance. Efficiency – improves buffering capacity. George Washington University and University of Rhode Island
LTRS 1. OUT AND BACK 2. STEPPING STONES 3. REPETITION 1000’S 4. TEMPO RUNS
TEMPO RUNS TEMPO RUNNING IS THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR ABILITY TO RUN LONG DISTANCES AT A QUALITY PACE. HOWEVER, RUNNING AT MODERATE PACE DOES NOT PRODUCE LARGE AMOUNTS OF LACTIC ACID NEEDED TO MAKE SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN YOUR LACTATE THRESHOLD OR MORE SPECIFICALLY YOUR LACTATE TURN POINT IT MAKES SENSE THAT IMPROVEMENTS IN LT WILL NOT BE MADE UNLESS HIGH LEVELS OF LACTIC ACID FORCE YOUR BODY TO ADAPT ITSELF IN ORDER TO CLEAR THE LACTATE. RESEARCH SHOWS THAT WORKOUTS THAT ARE AT OR ABOVE LT ARE THE BEST TRAINING PACES FOR IMPROVING LT.
OUT AND BACK ! This session has both a physiological side and particularly a psychological dimension. The aim is to run as fast as possible for 10 mins at an even pace on as level a surface as possible. Then turn without stopping and run back faster over the same distance !! CAN IT BE DONE ?--YES !
STEPPING STONES A. 6miles S/S – 800m fast, followed by slower/recovery 800m (Repeat 6 times) B. 8 miles S/S = 1 mile fast followed by 1 mile slower/recovery – repeat 4 times C. 6 miles S/S = 1 mile fast followed by half mile slower / recovery. Repeat 4 times D. 9 miles S/S = 1 mile fast followed by half mile slower/recovery. Repeat 6 times
VO 2 Max - Aerobic 90% - 100% Efforts (Sports Medicine 1986) 1.Long steady runs ----- 80% max 2.Fartlek – extended efforts ----- 800m 3.Tempo runs ----- 3 – 4 miles at 80 – 85%
Research carried out by Iowa State University indicates that athletes can improve their lactate-clearance and muscle-buffering capacities by conducting workouts which essentially consist of 45 to 120 second intervals carried out at close to maximal intensity, with 2 – 4 mins recoveries between intervals. ECONOMY / LACTIC ACID TOLERANCE “ Lactic Acid Tolerance Training:- Floods of lactic Acid Aren’t Necessarily Bad – If You Can Endure Them – (Running Research News / Peak Performance)
ECONOMY /LACTIC ACID TOLERANCE cont. The purpose of the short blasts of exertion is to produce lots of lactate, while the rationale for the relatively long recoveries is to coax the muscle cells into increasing their ability to metabolise the lactate produced during the work intervals – as well to provide enough “down” time so that the next work interval can be conducted at a very hard intensity which “spills out” another dense batch of lactate. Such sessions should significantly heighten MCT-1 concentrations. Example:8 x 300 ( with 3 min recovery) 4 x 600 ( with 5 min recovery) 6 x 1000 (7mins recovery)
MONO CARBOXYLATE TRANSPORTER1 RECENT RESEACH HAS PROVEN THAT THE MAJORITY OF LACTATE IS TRANSFERRED VIA A CARRIER PROTEIN CALLED MCT1. THIS CARRIER PROTEIN ATTACHES TO MUSCLE CELLS AND ACTS LIKE A DOORWAY TO SHUTTLE LACTATE INTO AND OUT OF WORKING CELLS. SO THE MORE MCT1 YOU HAVE, THE BETTER YOUR CELLS ARE AT USING AND CLEARING LACTATE.
