Here’s another Lydiard book I read, and this one is much better. It especially digs into the physiology of the training philosophy, probably in a way Lydiard never understood. (Our science and understanding is far beyond anything he had to work with so long ago…) While the physiology aspect is great, there really is not much in terms of training schedules. So you may want to combine this book with something else, such as a program from running-wizards.com.
I’m reading Daniels now so perhaps that is the solution. 🙂
