Subject: RE: Renato Canova - Arthur Lydiard Coaches Roundtable
I can sort of follow you argument in places, but it then becomes difficult to follow when you start to say "had the ability" to run faster. When you do this, you open up too many possibilities for any definite conclusions to be drawn. For example, using the same assumptions, a hard-core Lydiardist could just as easily argue that Peter Snell had the ability to run a 3-26 1500m on a Mondo surface track with pacemakers but his main goal was just to win the 1500m event at the Olympic games; he managed this with no difficulty in 1964.[/quote]
Good comment. Thanks. I might confess that I hesitate to include that idea about Rui, and you are right itīs subjective.
But I decide to include this part by some reason.
One is that to emphasize that sometimes runners with the Rui profile a fast finisher - the goal is win runs or the better classification as possible at big competitions and not best chromos, pbs, etc. and consequently his training approach is according of one that wants peak performances at the determined moment and not a new pb or world class performance it doesnīt matter what moment of the season.
Secondly. What I say about Rui is the same that some experts say about peter Snell for example, that he could have done better. Therefore no one Lydiardist can accuse me of one thing I really think the same for Peter Snell and more.
Third, what I said is not to say that he could have done best performances with the training that he does, but to emphasize that he just runs for competition success rather than chrono performances.
As i agree with you I revised the sentence and I write new version. I should write: Despite that I personally think that Rui as well as Peter Snell, both would have run faster pbs if they focus on records instead of focus on major competitions, Rui with same 1:44 8000m speed support to run longer distances that Peter, he got slower basic speed that Peter did. However the rationale analyses both runners or Rui related with another Lydiard runner, trough rich methodology, we might see the index/ratio of Ruiīs resistance is far superior to Peter, or to most of the Lydiard genuine runners, and in my opinion this is due to Ruiīs different training approach, that WITH A GOOD AEROBIC TRAINING TO PROGRESS AND SUSTAIN HIS AEROBIC CONDITION HE INCLUDES ANAEROBIC TRAINING IN EVERY PHASE OF THE SEASON PERIODISATION.
Actually it took some 3-4 minutes to write my last post, and you see English itīs not my mother language, and I wrote it so quickly, without revision or read after that I wrote. I just write, copy and post. However I think that the core of the message, my main argument itīs still correct despite that incorrect sentence.
