To determine my schedule, I looked over my old training logs, picked out a few workouts I liked, and then proceeded do these workouts over and over until the big day. Sometimes this process worked well, while at other times it was a disaster. Before my fastest marathon, I happened to throw together a program that involved a few consistent workouts. Tuesday of each week, I performed 800- to 2,400-meter intervals on the track at 5K to 10K pace. Later the same week I ran a second, faster workout that amounted to a hard 15-miler.
Training in this zone involves runs . primarily of 15- to 25-minute efforts completed at 75 to 90 percent VO2max. These runs are generally defined as tempo or steady-state runs and range from slightly slower than marathon race pace to as fast as 10K race pace. The main goal of training in this zone is to complete a comfortably hard effort for a sustained amount of time. This training zone is responsible for the following: • Increased ability of Type IIa fast-twitch muscle fibers to use glycolytic and oxidative enzymes • Increased stroke volume (the amount of blood pumped in a single contraction or beat of the heart) • Increased capillary density and blood volume Aerobic capacity.
This is a very important point. If you are trying to do an NMT workout, such as the strides workout noted on page 30, make sure you don’t build up lactic acid. You want to perform each repeat perfectly. You want to maintain good running technique and be able to move your arms and legs as quickly as possible for NMT training to affect the body as it should. A buildup of lactic acid compromises the internal mechanisms that NMT training focuses on. This manifests itself as deteriorating form (the head tilts back, the arms start to flail, and so on) and the inability to move the arms and legs as fast as possible.
