    Thanks Scott!

    This gave me some good insights. I will try and improvise and come up with some good workouts!

    Thank you guys for your time.

    And to answer the question. My general strength is kind of good because i have been doing general strength exercises and core work for some years now. I did the tests for the legs and hips and i was fine. So i moved to Stage 3 general strength workout straight away. However i started with relatively low weights and sometimes i do 2 or 3 sets instead of 4.

    About the gym based ME endurance workout, i also think that the exercise that made the biggest impact was the split squat jumps. I had rarely performed this exercise in the past. I think next time i’m going to keep the total reps <20.

    Thank you Aaron for trying and analysing all these details. I read the “economy” article you sent me. I very nice analysis and a good read indeed. I saved it and i’m going to keep for reference.

    I noticed too that on page 266 it mentions “Hill Sprint/Hill Bounding” at Anaerobic Capacity: Z5.
    So in a way still the term “Max Strength” on page 266 for me remains kind of confusing. It could also be referring to the “Stage 3” general strength program or maybe the “Muscular Endurance Program?

    Thanks Aaron.

    I’m aware of the TFTNA book but i haven’t read it my self.

    You said that “these hill sprint progressions move up in time (and slightly lower in max effort/speed) the effect becomes more metabolic (zone 4).” Is that what the book TFTUA is referring to at page 183 Anaerobic Endurance? It mentions there, two popular intervals for this type of training.

    My interest is in Mountain-Trail running so i want to focus on the workouts that are more specific to that. I’m starting my base phase next week so i would also like to ask some other questions on that. I hope that you or some other person will be able ton answer.

    Can runners use the bounding variation instead of sprints for the hill (sprint/bounding) workout?

    I just checked the “Heart Rate Drift: A Functional Measure of Fitness” article. I can’t see the Pa:Hr= X.XX%.in the upper corner as the article mentions. I don’t have an official account on TP though.

    Thank you very much for your analytical explanations.

    One last question about the “Lactate Threshold Testing”

    What incline should i choose for the test? I am trail-mountain runner. Will this also depend on the kind of terrain i’m training or racing.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I was not aware of these articles. I was referring to the Lactate step test mentioned on the TFTUA book by using a portable lactate analyzer. So now i would like to ask which of these should i do? I am bit confused..
