RE: A Lydiard Thread
Always enjoy your insight. One of the problems is that people look at numbers waaaaaaaaay too much. Forget 100 miles; forget 10 weeks; forget 4 or 6 weeks (hill); forget 20X400 or 18X400 or whatever. Lydiard laid out numbers for general audience as a guide. We still have to use what we've got between our ears. Lorraine and I have been working on Part II of the Lydiard presentation; "Applicaton of the Lydiard Program". In it, we termed "Bare Bone of the Lydiard System"; which is basically the principle of the program without numbers. Think of what we need to develop first, second, third and so on. Think of how we can achieve it, not by number, but by "reasons". Once you understand that, applying the Lydiard program to the US high school/college system is no problem.
By the way, Kim, Lorraine showed a video of Peter Snell to Tom Osborne. Now he understands why long runs are necessary for 800m runner! He's ready to fly down to TX to actually meet the man.
