I have read a lot of articles about aerobic trainning and how important it is but i have always wondered how fast could i get just by aerobic trainning, at the moment i train just under 25 miles per week mostly easy runs with one fartlek session per week of 1km on and 1:30min rest in between. what if i up the training slowly over a few weeks/months to 60 miles per week of only slow paced aerobic trainning, what would be the quickest time I could roughly do over say 10km? could i get below 6min per mile just with aerobic trainning, im male and 24 years old if that helps.
if you go from 25 miles a week to 60 miles a week you will see a dramatic improvement in your times ( in races ) as long as you do it sensibly and stay injury free.
Go to the HADD thread and read some of their actual improvements based on this type of training....
no aerobic trainning: running at slow and easy pace for distances between 5-15miles.
thanks, will defanite give it a try.
