After Uhwarrie in early February, I wanted to take a little time off from running (which ended up being just a week), and then I had planned to start a 12 week program geared towards a 5k. Life kind of through some curve balls in, so I’ve not quite trained like I would have like, but I”m still running pretty well. Just not “training” for something specific.
Anyway, I wanted to follow a Lydiard style program, which I got from running-wizards.com. But I also wanted to learn more about Lydiard and his training philosophies, so I got this book. I have to say it is pretty disappointing. It is just a bunch of his writing from various times, and they don’t always flow that well together. And the last few chapters are written more for training footballers (soccer players), than runners!
Glad I didn’t buy it!
