Acid Test For Runners - A New Look at Lactic Acid


A truly fascinating look at the latest research in the role lactic acid plays in the excercise cycle. Who knew physiology and bio-chemistry could be so scintillating?

I love the premise that hard speed work will actually increase the number of your mitochondria after you build a base of long endurance runs. The best coaches have been instinctively right for decades while the scientists have basically gotten it backwards!

A tip of the hat to all those coaches and athletes whose instictive training methods and keen powers of observation led them by default to the correct training methods.
