I REALLY like Kelly's writing. That guy knows his stuff.
That brings me to question...unless you are entering a somewhat LD running race is there any really good reason to get a mile time down to something like 5-6 minutes? Or a person that can sprint the heck out of anything under 100m's and do a mile in around 8 minutes/
In most sports it is a series of sprints up and down field + lateral motion rather than a 5K/marathon. So wouldn't trying to keep the use of the larger, stronger fibers for bursts be more optimal for performance?
