I read the article through once, then went back with a highlighter the 2nd time I read it. I practically hightlighted the whole article.

I actually have to read it a second time, maybe even a third or fourth time, myself.

I like the stuff about anaerobic development being limited and that it only takes 10-12 weeks to max that out.

That’s something that a lot of people don’t seem to understand. That’s why people who do speedwork all the time tend to plateau within 3-6 months.

Also that sprinting speed needs to be developed 52 weeks out of the year.

I’ve always liked the idea of doing strides almost all the time. Imagine my surprise and pleasure when I discovered that he supports that idea.

I think that’s the first time I’ve ever heard someone say that about Lydiard. 😉

IMHO, you can’t go wrong following Lydiard.
