I wonder if Dr Herzog is familiar with some of the top leve triathletes? At Clearwater this year the top guys were riding 28mph for 56 miles, then running sub 6:00 pace for 13.1 miles off the bike.

I think most elite level endurance athletes would have the same problem. Why fatigue yourself with an exercise modality that has little specificity for your particular event? Besides, if I had an extra 30 minutes, that time was better spent on an extra run.

Stop and go sports like soccer, basketball, and football are different.
do you really mean...I love LSD... don't wast my time with actually studies/data/etc...

"if I had an extra 30 minutes, that time was better spent on an extra run." ...or you could have read some of the info that has been mentioned???

Hi Eric. I would respond but I cannot figure out what you are saying. Maybe if you wrote actual sentences it would make more sense?

I am not a LSD/Maffetone fan. There is a place for LSD but LSD all the time is a waste and not optimal.

Maffetone's method does work, but it does that a very long time to top out your highest speed at a low HR. However, there have been plenty of other methods that have come out that are also effective. When I was using Maffetone's training methods, I was seeing my speed increase while my HR stayed low. But I also ran out of patience for it after several months and decided to give up being a slave to the HR monitor. After trying low-HR/low-intensity work, high-HR/high-intensity work, and everything in-between, I've found my body seems to be good with a mix of both low and high efforts.
