RE: Mr. Renato Canova: Could You Please Answer a Question About Effective Ways to Improve the Lactate Threshold?

I don't know that Lydiard "invented" anything -- I think that he studied what the current training systems were and compared it to his own experiments and developed some basic rules that (whether by inspiration or independent invention) are followed by the majority of the world's successful middle and long distance runners.

I myself, a huge Lydiard fan, would not periodize myself nor an athlete of mine as outlined in his books -- but the physiology behind his training is sound.
