Description

Arthur Lydiard, the famed Olympic running coach, pioneered a training system involving a base of long-duration, even-paced running with strong speed. The achievements of New Zealand athletes Peter Snell, Murray Halberg, and Barry Magee at the 1960 Rome Olympics confirmed the success of Lydiard's training program. This, his first book in over 15 years, offers information on exercise physiology, diet, injury prevention and cure, jogging, and extensive training schedules for running events, keyed to men and women in specific age-groups.
