The marathon conditioning phase seems reasonable. But then the hill phase has you doing hill bounds for an hour MWF, with sprinting on TThSa, with a long run Sunday. When exactly does one recover?
Anaerobic phase has repetition work TThSa, with sprints MWF, long run Sunday. Coordination training week goes sprint day Monday, time trial Tuesday, race Wednesday, repetition work on Thursday, race Saturday.
Holy crap! (1) can people actually complete this level of work? (2) can anyone who has followed Lydiard in practice give us some insight as to what kind of modifications were made, because this "schedule" seems unreal, (3) how the heck did anyone ever get the idea that Lydiard training is just long slow running? That seems to be the opposite of the truth. Letsrun seems to think that Daniels is rep work and Lydiard is distance work. But man there is a lot of sprinting, time trials, hill work, etc. in this Lydiard program.
