Exactly hit the nail on the head about the more you train some thing the better you'll get mentally and physically at completing it.I’m no expert either, purely opinion based from my own experience of running different variations.
Without a shadow of a doubt it’s the best way to increase milage. However I personally don’t think it’s the best format to use for a running routine that consists of only 3 runs as week. If somebody is allowing their body to recover more days than it is training, then you better make sure you’re pushing it on those three otherwise you won’t really be forcing your body to change, it’ll just stay the same. As your body does adapt to its demands you’ll have to increase different variables and a very major one is frequency. Often the more you train something, the better you get at it.
I’ll add i’m currently following a somewhat 80/20 format with my runs but I’m running 5-6x a week now, rather than the 3x I used to.
I’m quiet interested in seeing how much running we’ll be doing in RT, how often, how far, as I know there’s a lot of variation within the 32weeks. All I know is it’ll be balls to the wall throughout!
Everything from what I read about pays to be a winner and camp circuits is better effort every time so wouldn't expect anything less to be honest.
I don't think you run more then 3/4 miles in a normal way we think about it but during exercises and gym circuits it will all add up.
