RE: A Lydiard Thread
I would like to share a couple of stories. I had lunch with Lorraine Moller and Rod Dixon in LA a couple of days ago. And by the way, Larry King was sitting the table next to us. Anyways, we were talking about the Lydiard training. We were saying how people just can't uderstand the trick of running by feel and instead they just want numbers; be it % of HRM or X seconds slower or faster than whatever your race pace, etc. We all agreed that perhaps Arthur's effort system with 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 effort is the best way to go by. Rod said, "Someone asked me what the heck is a 1/4 effort. I told him, 'Well, you know your full effort. Okay, devide that into four...'" By this point we were just laughing so hard.

Now, we are all prejudiced. We think Lydiard training is pretty nice way to train. We may be just a complete idiot or we don't know just what the heck we're talking about... I showed this thread to Lorraine and, sorry some of the guys who think the Lydiardism is an old fashion no-good-for-today's-modern-track-world, she said, "Has anybody come up with a better wheel?" Well, some thread pattern maybe, but it's still round, isn't it?
