1:49, way to totally miss the point.
Kim just spent nearly an entire post "putting things into perspective" and NOT biting anyone's head off about Lydiard. In fact, Kim barely SPOKE about Lydiard in the post, except to say that Jack influenced Lydiard just as he influenced Kim!
Seems to me like you're being a little sensitive about everything. The better way to "put things in perspective" would be perhaps to talk about some of the other great coaches' methods out there, rather than just allude to them as you continue to say that Lydiard wasn't the only great one.
We all know he wasn't, but since we have a bunch of Lydiard experts here, we end up talking about his method, mostly. I could talk for an hour and a half about Daniels and leave pages and pages of posts, but I don't know anything about Daniels, having never studied him before, so all those posts would be me making stuff up. If we want this to be a thread for all kinds of methods, recruit some experts of other methods!
I don't expect Nobby to provide the same level of insight insight as to Percy Cerutty's training or Rob De Castella's methods as he can with Lydiard, nor for Tinman or HRE or Kim. They're sharing what THEY KNOW.
As for the idea that "all elites do Lydiard, even if its not by name" I think that's more a reflection of basic principles of training than Lydiard. Any good program needs aerobic development, anaerobic development, sharpening, race-specific training, etc. It just so happens that running for prolonged peroids of time at distances way longer than race distances is the best way for aerobic development. . . Lydiard is often identified with high-end aerobic development, so yeah, it is valid to say "Frank Shorter did a lot of Lydiard type aerobic running" because Lydiard was big on aerobic development and we associate him with it. It would also be fair to say "Frank shorter did a lot of Van Aaken type aerobic running."
A runner coached by Lydiard would be more likely to compare other peoples' training to his own, because his own is more familiar to him. A runner coached by Van Aaken would compare another runners' training to his own, and so on and so forth.
There are some basic principles in training that don't change-- it'd be just as easy for Peter Coe to watch a Lydiard-trained athlete do a ten miler fairly hard and say 'that's like what Seb did when he was emphasizing aerobic development' as it is for Nobby to look at Seb Coe's training and go "oh, that's classic Lydiard hill workout!"
