I liked reading this article a lot and it gave me a new reason to believe in easy runs during marathon training. My only question is the long term effect of the metabolic efficiency obtained by aerobic training. The example given in the article shows an improvement of fat oxidation at submax intensities after aerobic training during an off-season. What if the athlete goes back into higher intensity training, will his metabolic efficiency stay this efficient or will it decrease if higher intensity training is maintained? Thanks!
