RE: A Lydiard Thread
Mostly this will second what's already been written. Are you looking to be race ready most of the year or are you working to a single peak? It looks to me like the former is true in your case. If so, you might want to put together a program that incorporates the various elements for most of the year (I'd still have a "down" period where you concentrated on base building.) But you could work out a schedule where you have a hill session, a threshold run, a time trial or race, an interval session, and long runs consistently included. You wouldn't likely do all of them in a week, but could rotate them through, perhaps emphasizing one more regularly than others at the appropriate time.
