After listening to the Doc's speech, eerm, interview on IM Talk, I was thinking about the "Grey Zone" (or gray for those in the U.S.).
Scott had me down for 40 minutes easy run, I jumped on the treadmill and rather than dial in easy, I pushed up to 10K pace, then thought to myself - have I just entered the "grey zone"? A dialed it down again a did as I was told.
Interestingly on the recent thread Doc mentions hammering it on the turbo with a ride outside at the weekend, so again we're skipping that big middle section, going hard and then long and presumably easy at the weekend
But then Doc says - the long slow run is bullshit, so where does this fit into things, or is the long slow run just base / endurance but the reasl work is on the tempo runs and 800's?
Or should I just switch off my brain and do as I'm told?
