Learning From the Greats — Arthur Lydiard

If you want to be a successful runner, you have to consider everything. It’s no good just thinking about endurance and not to develop fine speed.

— Arthur Lydiard

One of the misconceptions about following a Lydiard based program is that it was all long, slow distance running…people believe that it neglected certain aspects of training. However, that’s not true…Lydiard knew that you needed to consider every aspect of training in order to reach your full potential.
