The study involved seven world-class orienteers and skiers, with an exceptionally impressive average VO2max: 80.7 ml/kg/min. The gist of the study was: Have the subjects run hard for a while to tire them out; then allow them to recover for a few minutes until their lactate levels reach either 3 mmol/L or 5 mmol/L; then measure their running economy while running around threshold pace. The key result was that when they were less recovered (i.e., 5 mmol/L of lactate), their running economy was 5.5 percent worse. That’s an enormous difference. The authors estimate that it corresponds to a difference of 30 seconds in a 10-minute run, three minutes in a one-hour run, or 8.25 minutes in a 2:30 m...
