SailorSteve, I wouldn't really dispute what you say there. There's certainly no easy way of getting fast without putting the miles in, and I would even say that until you get to c35+mpw, you're probably not going to make the most of any speedwork you do. I'm certainly a big fan of doing the vast majority of my runs easy (I have a followed a polarised training approach for a few years now). What intrigues me about this 'Easy Interval Method' is that the interval sessions he talks about are, in effect, easy runs - same overall pace, same mileage, same non-knackered feeling at the end - just done a different way.

The guy doesn't rule out long runs, incidentally, they're a fundamental part of the programme, particularly for HM and marathon distance. He just advocates that you throw in 'surges' of 30 seconds or so every 6-7 minutes, to vary pacing and avoid deadening your legs. The intervals are more a replacement for day to day steady easy runs.

Got something to say?
