Lydiard Training Methods Explained
You'll see, for example, how to use sessions of long slow distance therapeutically, to help recover form. Keith has also done a great job of providing the missing science; although Arthur has been hailed as the greatest running coach of all time, Keith reminds us that Arthur was actually a milkman; he worked things out by experimenting on himself and then with trial and error plus intuition. 30 years on, and with the benefit of the latest research, we can see why Arthur's system works so well -- and also what we need to tweak to make it even more effective. -customer review on Amazon.com
MY COMMENT: Looks like a good book detailing the training system used so successfully by New Zealand's Arthur Lydiard. I am ordering this one today!
