RE: ya
I need Kim's help here in detail but Dixon kept telling me the incidence prior to 72 Munich Olympics that he and John sat down with Arthur for over 6 hours, talking about training in detail. Dixon says that Kiwis had always been known to run a lot (in the olden days when people like Billy Savidan, Cecil Matthews and Harold Nelson). It sort of peaked during the Lydiard era and he certainly "perfected" the aerobic conditioning concept. Anyways, I guess I digressed a bit. Rod says that it's not that John "refers" to the Lydiard program but the concept has always been inbuilt in all the Kiwi runners anyways.

I thought there was some stories about John in "Aim High" but I guess I was wrong. I remember reading more about him somewhere--could be old issue of New Zealand Runner but I couldn't find them (my running library is as messy as yours!).
