RE: ARTHUR LYDIARD OR JACK DANIELS?
jtupper (okay, I know who you are but I still like to respect your sign-in name):

I liked your comment on running shoes in your book; not too rigid, yet, well-balanced recommendation. Having come from the Lydiard school and Japanese school (literally), I believe in what is now known as "minimallist" shoes. Whenever I got together with Arthur, we talked about, some part of our conversation, running shoes even in the last moment on his last tour. I train mostly in racing flats (not exclusively though). You seem to have recommended training in racing flats/skipes at least some part of training but you didn't make much comment on running in today's so-called "high-tech" shoes. I'm almost conviced, when some coaches and runners talk about high mileage causing injuries, quite often it's actually incorrect shoes that's contributing more to injuries. What is your take on this issue? Would love to hear your opinion.
