RE: Nice work, mate.
I was reading what I wrote (I was sending an e-mail to someone about marathon coordination) and that one line where I said "just because ONE athlete had success doing one way, that doesn't mean that's the best general way," I thought someone might jump all over by saying "See, that's what I mean about the Lydiard method!"... Well, here's my counter for that; what's important is PRINCIPLES and EVALUATION of each workout or pattern; to understand WHYs of each workout and construct your schedule based on logic and common sense. The Lydiard method I'm talking about is that FLOW or PATTERN of over-all training. Whether you use half marathon or 10k or 35k for the final preparation to the marathon does not matter too much. The point is why you do it and what physiological and mechanical reaction you'd expect by doing that; plus how long will it take for YOU as an indivisual to get the most effective feedback from that workout and, based on that, where do you slap that workout in relation to your most imporatnt race. Gosh, what a bunch of BS I just slap together...! What do you think?
