RE: ARTHUR LYDIARD OR JACK DANIELS?
I've got a post on the thread about the anniversary of Percy Cerutty's death (pretty appropriate thing to do from Down Under.) I've always thought that Cerutty was more motivator than technician and on thinking about Arthur, I've concluded that he too was at least as much a motivator as technician. Essentially, I'm saying that you're dead right. Succeeding as a runner is more about spirit and desire and passion than about how fast or slow you should run for Thursday's mile reps. If you look at the training of a lot of the successful guys from the past, Adcocks is a good example, it's missing so many of the elements we "know" you need to include. And yet most of today's top guys would kill for Adcocks's performances.
Anyway mate, happy birthday and no worries about the book. She'll come right. (That's my attempt at going local.)
It's a big continent. We had a stopover in Melbourne and learned that they'd had snow earlier in the day for the first time in 19 years. Perth is a bit more northerly and sits by a warm ocean current (can't think of the name.) It's great weatherwise, sort of like a New England October minus the colors. It's been in the 60s most days. We hit the 70s once, I think. The nights are cool and it's pretty dry, though we did have a bit of rain two days ago. Nice break from the stickiness we had before I left.
