comment Why do distance running training programs tell you to do long runs so slowly?
@DaveLiepmann Yeah, that's obviously true. And I'm not abandoning my own training or faulting others for following the advice of coaches. The question was about whether there was any evidence for the conventional wisdom, though, because I'm skeptical and curious like that.

comment Running the day after a long run.
I've read that the argument that recovery runs force lactic acid out of your muscles has been debunked, and in fact lactic acid is gone from the muscles within an hour of even the most intense workouts. I don't have any citations for this, but perhaps others do.
