Now that I look at this, it brings me to a question for anyone that’d like to answer. Lydiard doesn’t have any specific tempo runs in his program. Is that because he says the aerobic base building period should be run between 70-99% of your aerobic capacity? Is that where malmo, Hodgie-san, et al say run hard when you feel good, back off when you don’t?

Yes and yes. If I remember correctly, I seem to recall Malmo saying some time back that the term “tempo run” wasn’t even around 20-25 years ago. Sometimes, you ran very slow. Other times, you ran pretty fast. Those pretty fast days would today be called tempo runs.
