The intervals are the workouts which lay the basis for overall physical capacity. Gustav says: "I am, personally, very concerned with alternating between hard and easier workouts. The slow running trips should be slow, and it is preferable that they last as long as the upcoming competitions. This means that they can vary between 3-5 hours. During the simplest long workouts, I incorporate a speed interval of 20-30 seconds each hour, to avoid being too stiff. I vary between 1-3 intervals each hour, depending on how hard/easy the workout should be. It is my experience that these drags/intervals have a good effect, and you often feel more energetic after a series of them. Long workouts are maybe just as important as the interval and hard workouts because your body gets used to exercising over a long time. Many handles 2-hour workouts very well, but 3, 4 and 5-hour workouts are something different altogether. During those workouts you feel things, especially on the muscular front, that you just need to be used to and have experience dealing with. You only get that by getting these long workouts regularly over the year."
