Either do the top 1500m, 5000m, 10000m, or marathon runners.[/quote]
Whatīs "L type of training" to you? Like Iīve said you shouldnīt take his programs LITERALLY. I agree with you totally that the planning wasnīt perfect in the terms of these days, when you canīt hide from speed as much as in the 60īs. How you can be so sure about what every single top 800-marathon runners does in training? Thereīs for sure plenty of runners who uses these moderate hard long runs (sub lactate threshold as you know in these days), tempo runs, fartlek runs or is training at level very close to what Lydiard said about optimal overall volume, and uses different training during different phases. Lydiard made it clear that you should AVOID the HARD interval training in the base phase that was normal in the past.
After Snellīs success people realised that even 800m runner needs to work them basic endurance hard, and aim for higher overall volume than was usual before. He changed the way the people thought about the importance of basic endurance training in distance running at 800m and longer.
Good luck with the Canova training. I think that you should still include the long moderate hard runs, tempo runs, easy runs etc. ala Lydiard in your/your athletes (hope not) schedule. I will not comment this subject further with you, because you constantly ignore my points.
