Good stuff Mark, I posted this in several forums. Important knowledge. Sisson's background is impressive as well.

Thanks for posting that link Rif. I'v been saying that for a long time, that too much volume is a real negative. I am coaching a couple of competitive cyclists and they are doing very well on a less volume/ higher quality program. There is a mindset amongst enduros especially that more is better, but isn't more just more and better (e.g. quality)training two different things? really makes a person appreciate the RKC system of training, I mean "practice";).
