Aspects of anaerobic and aerobic energy conversion are investigated using a mathematical model of running in conjunction with world-record statistics. Analysis of the data shows that over distances from 1500 to 10,000 m the anaerobic energy utilised is constant and independent of running distance. This result is consistent with the view that the full potential of the anaerobic capacity is available for conversion during extended periods of running; the opinions of Gollnick and Hermansen (1973… CONTINUE READING
