RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?
I think Lydiard was only a guy who pointed out that higher mileage is a vital key to success, nothing more than that, no specific programs.

Same with the guy Gershler, just because you use interval-training you don't say you train the Gershler-way.

I think there are very few good runners who train the true "Lydiard"-way today.

The problem is that people SAY they train the "Lydiard"-way, just because they do higher mileage and nothing else in Lydiard's program. I think it's a misunderstanding....people use the name Lydiard too much. He just pointed out a fact, like Gershler did. Coaches of today uses these facts to build their own training-system, but they also uses facts from not so famous guys who pointed out great facts as well. And sometimes coaches take a fact for granted, and forgot who actually pointed out the fact.
