My Hypothesis-SpookyGhost

  1. training for middle distance runners
  2. multiple approaches to training for middle distance runners
  3. lack of balance between speed and mileage effecting the performance of a middle distance runner
  4. The required balance of the aerobic and anaerobic training required for success in the 800m race.
  5. The difference in training plans for an 800 meter runner with slow twitch muscle fibers vs fast twitch muscle fibers.
  6. For the greatest chance at success coaches must determine the type of muscle fibers an 800 meter runner has prior to calculating the balance between aerobic and anaerobic training.

    I love the specificity of the Hypothesis, Spooky, and I look forward to learning about muscle twitch speed. My question would be whether what you propose to demonstrate is already established fact for those in the know, or whether it actually requires research and your own analysis to prove.
    The “background” you provide in steps 4 and 5 isn’t actually a set of claims. It doesn’t say, for example, “Both aerobic and anaerobic training are required for 800m runners since they need both short burst speed and stamina” or “no 800m runner can excel without training both for speed and stamina, for which two muscle types must be exercised and utilized.”
    If that’s all well-known, there’s not much mystery left to your research.
    Help me out with that and I’m all in.
    Whether you revise this post or not, I expect you to respond to feedback to demonstrate your respect for the process, Spooky. Otherwise, I’m less likely to help in the future. Thanks!

      From what I know as a runner and the research I’ve done so far, its still an argument up in the air about what the most efficient way to train a middle distance athlete. As training speed over distance and distance over speed have both seen benefits for athletes across all levels of competition, I want to learn which is scientifically the best way to train.
