This article investigates whether there is currently sufficient scientific knowledge for scientists to be able to give valid training recommendations to longdistance runners and their coaches on how to most effectively enhance the maximal oxygen uptake, lactate threshold and running economy. Relatively few training studies involving trained distance runners have been conducted, and these studies have often included methodological factors that make interpretation of the findings difficult.

Interval Training with Active Recovery and the Physical Capacity of Recreational Male Runners
Abstract Introduction. So far there have been few studies on the effect of interval training with active recovery aimed at increasing aerobic power on the physical capacity of long-distance runners.Expand
The Utility of Strength-Based Exercise for Middle- and Long-Distance Runners
TLDR
The addition of ST to the training routine of a middle- or long-distance runner appears to provide a performance advantage via improvements in RE and anaerobic factors. Expand
The Effects of Interval and Continuous Training on the Oxygen Cost of Running in Recreational Runners: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
Continuous training seems, overall, a better strategy than interval training to reduce the oxygen cost in recreational endurance runners. Expand
The Relationship Between Aerobic and Anaerobic Performance in Recreational Runners
TLDR
The results indicate an existing possibility that anaerobic performance measures such as RFD may have a positive relationship with aerobic performance Measures such as VO2max, and it may be beneficial to integrate specific training components which focus on improving RFD as a method of improving running performance. Expand
The dose-response relationship between interval-training and VO2max in well-trained endurance runners: A systematic review
TLDR
The novel method of training-load analysis demonstrates a relationship between the IT STRIMP and VO2max improvements, which provides practical application for the periodization of IT within the training regime of well-trained distance runners. Expand
Effects of Different Uphill Interval-Training Programs on Running Economy and Performance
Purpose: Runners use uphill running as a movement-specific form of resistance training to enhance performance. However, the optimal parameters for prescribing intervals are unknown. The authorsExpand
SPANISH LONG-DISTANCE RUNNERS
The aim of this novel research was to compare the amount of systematic training and the different training activities undertaken by elite-standard long-distance runners during their first seven yearsExpand
Predictive Performance Models in Long-Distance Runners: A Narrative Review
TLDR
A large gap exists in predicting time in long-distance races, based on field tests, and the predictor variables of the half and full marathon specialties are mainly anthropometric, but with moderate coefficients of determination. Expand
Comparison of Physiological Variables Between the Elliptical Bicycle and Run Training in Experienced Runners
TLDR
It is suggested that EBIKE training can be an effective cross-training method to maintain and improve certain physiological and performance variables in experienced runners over a 4-week period. Expand
Anaerobic and aerobic contributions to 800 m and 8 km season bests
Objective: Both anaerobic and aerobic factors contribute to distance running performance. How these factors relate to middle and long distance running performance in National Association ofExpand

TLDR
This review will provide guidance for future research in terms of topics, as well as design and methodology for running research, to identify selected areas where additional research appears needed. Expand
Influence of intense endurance training on aerobic power of competitive distance runners.
TLDR
The data suggest an adaptation of constant magnitude of the factor(s) which limit peak-CE VO2 when training intensity is maintained relative to improvement, however, this linear response and training intensity may be maintained only on a limited basis without expecting some decline in performance and aerobic power. Expand
How do endurance runners actually train? Relationship with competition performance.
TLDR
It is suggested that total training time spent at low intensities might be associated with improved performance during highly intense endurance events, especially if the event duration is approximately 35 min. Expand
Training techniques to improve fatigue resistance and enhance endurance performance.
TLDR
The physiological factors associated with successful endurance performance are identified, and the results of investigations on competitive endurance cyclists which examined the time-course of changes in performance in response to a sustained, high-intensity interval training programme are summarized. Expand
Is there an Optimal Training Intensity for Enhancing the Maximal Oxygen Uptake of Distance Runners?
TLDR
High-intensity training may be effective or even necessary for well trained distance runners to enhance VO2max, however, the efficacy of optimised protocols for enhancingVO2max needs to be established with well controlled studies in which they are compared with protocols involving other training intensities typically used by distance runners. Expand
Physiological characteristics of elite middle and long distance runners.
TLDR
Results of this investigation demonstrate that there are differences in the metabolic characteristics of the MD and LD runners as classified, and VO2max was more highly correlated with running performance in the MD group than in the LD group. Expand
Interval Training for Performance: A Scientific and Empirical Practice
TLDR
Using short-interval training, it seems to be very difficult to elicit exclusively anaerobic metabolism, but studies have clearly demonstrated that the contribution of glycogenolysis to the total energy demand was considerably less than that if work of a similar intensity was performed continuously. Expand
Training Content and Potential Impact on Performance
TLDR
It is suggested that changes in training content during the season, such as severe (long-duration or high-intensity) training sessions, may have improved young endurance-trained men and women performance capacity. Expand
Specificity of physiological adaptation to endurance training in distance runners and competitive walkers
TLDR
It is suggested that the changes in blood lactate variables such as LT and OBLA played a role in improving F of both the distance runners and the competitive walkers. Expand
Training intensity of elite male distance runners.
TLDR
If the AT is the optimum training intensity, these subjects have considerable scope for improvement, and relative TS may be determined by the subject's or coach's perception of the appropriate intensity for the event. Expand
