That is correct! There is not much difference in the programs. Daniels has stated Lydiard laid the foundation. He simply put science into the principles. Daniels even does encourage drills to strengthen yourself, especially the core region. It is not the extent of Lydiard. Daniels focus is on being fit, which society does not have the regiment as in the past when he grew up. Daniels and Lydiard both agree it is important for a runner to be fit and build that capacity before getting into serious work. Daniels will train any person at any mileage to make it work for them. He will find that range and apply the principles. Remember Lydiard had 100 miles as a baseline but you do need to add in the drills (some you are running), short sprints, and other stressors he included into the program. He states that put runners on average near 120 mpw. Lydiard would adjust if absolutuely necessary that baseline for a runner. He better much stuck to theory if you wanted to be world class. You are always going to have injuries regardless if Daniels or Lydiard. A person should know their limits and what does work. When it becomes too much you back down to right amount for you. When it is too less you increase to right amount you can handle. All simple!
