RE: LYDIARD OR DANIELS?
That's the whole reason why Lydiard structured his training the way he did.
The reason Snell could do all that hard anaerobic work was BECAUSE of all those long runs he did during buildup.
The point of the long run is that it gives you strength and durability; the durability you NEED to do all the track workouts Snell did.
The way I see it, it was the track workouts Snell did that made him such a great racer. But it was the long runs he did BEFORE those track workouts that made him ABLE to withstand all those hills and all those hard repeats.
