Since the outstanding success of his New Zealand athletes Snell, Halberg, and Magee at the 1960 Rome Olympics, Arthur Lydiard's name has been synonymous with the best training methods used by the world's top middle- and long-distance runners. Arthur Lydiard's methods are just as relevant today as they were 60 years ago and are still used by top athletes looking to enhance their performance.

This new edition presents Lydiard's high-performance training techniques and includes systematic, detailed training programs based on his definition of fitness. Each runner can tailor the programs to his or her goal.

Also included are tips for the best running gear, nutrition, preventing injury, and therapy, and the book even delves into the relationship between the coach and the athlete-making it a must-have for all runners and coaches
