My purpose in posting all of this here is to point out the conceptual brilliance of Arthur Lydiard, whilst pointing out the errors in the science of his approach, and some of his ideas, such as the one where he states that once you start "anerobic training" you cannot increase your aerobic capacity.
This isn't true, you can increase your aerobic capacity at any time in the training plan, and you can add speed at any point too, without sacrificing endurance.
What you say it’s inappropriate. You take the risk to be banned from Lydiardism consideration. What you write is to turn on positive comments into negative comments.
No way that once you start "anaerobic training" you cannot increase your aerobic capacity. No way. This means that in the early endurance/100miles/marathon training block you may do workouts, repetitions, track workouts ? Go back to an old post and you get the mr. Nobby Lydiard expertise answer ”may be that’s good, but that’s not Lydiard training”. The Lydiard method doesn’t prescribe anaerobic workouts. Actually by the modern physiology we know what we knew from training experience. What was considered anaerobic training – intervals and repetition workouts - aren’t as anaerobic as some did imagine and that Lydiard did imagine and that Lydiardists they still imagine. This means that if we wish and we consider effective we are allow of running anaerobic workouts during the season. We can run that anaerobic long before the Lydiard anaerobic block period or long before the hill block with no major danger or stagnate our aerobic condition as long as we keep with the aerobic training. But don’t you know that Lydiard method is the perfect combination of aerobic and anaerobic training ?
Top class runners they don´t do anaerobic training during the introductory block. They wait some 8 months before going anaerobic. 6 weeks before the peak run that´s enough.. Borzakovsky doesn’t. Bekele doesn’t. Mottram doesn’t.
Tinman. He is a good guy really. But it happens he have double personality combined with coach megalomania. One day he says that he create the formula of the anaerobic threshold pace, the other day he will send you an e-mail with a different calculation, Few days later he will say he will quite out LRC. The other day he will come back to LRC and says that Jack Daniels stole him some training concepts.
IQ100, why are you misquoting me and then agreeing with what I have already written, but saying that you really disagree etc etc blah blah blah?
