Training pace - I don get it ...

Ian MMR, I did say it was a highly simplified explanation! The main point being bringing about mitochondria and capillary development and not compromising it.
Stress hormones are part of the picture, also lactate build up.
I was referring to cortisol, something I remembered off the top of my head that's all. ultrunr.com
As I have said before though, there are plenty of books available where people can get all the detail they need. Most folk though just want a quick simple explanation, like run slower and you will get more aerobically fit and as a result will be able to run better.

Magpie RobOK it just sounded the wrong way round to me, like the heart was stimulating hormone release. And I don't think we need to worry too much about hydrocortisone unless we are overtraining. I use HR training and have read the Parker book which I would recommend.
Clatters, I looked at your recent training log. You are a similar age to me and have similar times up to half-marathon. But you don't do nearly enough training if you want to be your best! I am running around 200 miles per month yet you have logged only 268 for the year. You are clearly a gifted runner. With decent base mileage, you would leave me standing! Let's see what you can do...!

ClattersThanks Magpie ..... I'm only too aware I don't do enough training / mileage. With 2 young children, no sleep at night and a full time job it's a wonder I do any at all !! I WANT to do more, because I think (with my new-found knowledge is PROPER training!) I can really look to chop some decent chunks of my various PB's ....
