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!
