Running with Lydiard

Running With Lydiard contains expanded information on exercise physiology, diet, injury prevention and cure, discussion of Lydiard's methods and revised training schedules.

Running with Lydiard

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. His schedules precipitated an athletic revolution, stressing as they did physiological conditioning as a prerequisite to sporting effort, and long-duration even-pace running at a strong speed as the means of achieving this. While instructing runners and coaches in Finland, Mexico, Venezuela, Denmark, Japan, the United States and New Zealand for more than 50 years, Arthur Lydiard always continued to experiment and refine his methods—methods that are still as relevant today as they were over half a century ago. Running With Lydiard contains expanded information on exercise physiology, diet, injury prevention and cure, discussion of Lydiard's methods and revised training schedules.

A jogging handbook. It renews Arthur Lydiard's philosophy of jogging, just as it was 40 years ago. It is a guide to why you should jog, if you are not jogging already; how you jog, or jog better if you jog already; and how it holds back the degeneration that does not necessarily have to accompany the advancing years. Lydiard argues that jogging will not stop you growing older but it will help you to grow older more gracefully and with less loss of both physical and mental mobility.

Natural Running

Natural Running is the middle ground runners have been looking for. By learning to run the barefoot way, while wearing shoes, runners will become more efficient, stronger, and healthier runners. Backed by studies at MIT and Harvard, running form and injury expert Danny Abshire presents the natural running technique, form drills, and an 8-week transition plan that will put runners on the path to faster, more efficient, and healthier running. In Natural Running, Abshire explains how modern running shoes distort the efficient running technique that humans evolved over thousands of years. He reviews the history of running shoes and injuries, making the case for barefoot running but also warning about its dangers. By learning the natural running technique, runners can enjoy both worlds—comfortable feet, knees, and legs and an efficient running form that reduces impact and injuries. Natural Running teaches runners to think about injuries as symptoms of poor running form. Abshire specifies the overuse injuries that are most commonly associated with particular body alignment problems, foot types, and form flaws. Runners will learn how to analyze and identify their own characteristics so they can start down the path to natural running. Abshire explains the natural running technique, describing the posture, arm carriage, cadence, and land-lever-lift foot positioning that mimic the barefoot running style. Using Abshire's 8-week transition plan and a tool kit of strength and form drills, runners will move from heel striking to a midfoot or forefoot strike. Natural Running is the newest way to run and also the oldest. By discovering how they were meant to run, runners will become more efficient, stronger, and healthier runners.

otherwise ordinary men distinguished by an intense interest in running and
fitness.

Arthur Lydiard

Arthur Lydiard was the most successful and influential running coach of the last fifty years. He burst into prominence at the Rome Olympics in 1960 when two of his protégés, Peter Snell and Murray Halberg, won Olympic gold medals on the same day. His team of runners, trained to brilliance, went on to dominate international track and marathon running for two decades. During this time he developed and perfected his revolutionary endurance-based training system designed to help any athlete become a better runner. Worldwide adoption of his technique by other running coaches, and by many coaches in other sports, has seen Lydiard-conditioned athletes winning Olympic, international and national titles and breaking records by the score. Lydiard also made possibly the greatest individual contribution to world health and fitness in history: his promotion of jogging influenced millions of people around the globe. In the year before his death in December 2004, Arthur Lydiard worked with his long-time friend Garth Gilmour to tell the full story of his remarkable life, from his early years in New Zealand to his coaching experiences in Finland, Mexico, Venezuela and elsewhere around the world. The indefatigable Lydiard coached and lectured extensively, especially in the United States, where he died suddenly during a lecture tour. One of just 20 holders of New Zealand's highest honour, the Order of New Zealand, he was also awarded Finland's premier honour, the White Star.

Swim to the Top

New Zealand swimming coach David Wright sought the help of running guru Arthur Lydiard to gain better results. He had already used Lydiard's endurance training schedules while living and working in England to establish his wife, Alison, as one of New Zealand's premier middle-distance runners, and wondered how Lydiard's methods could be applied in the swimming pool. For nearly a decade, Wright and Lydiard, collaborating every week, experimented with the conversion of long-distance aerobic endurance training, hill running, bounding and springing, steps running and sprint sharpening from the varied terrains that a runner encounters to the confines of a swimming pool's still, flat water. This volume presents the method they have developed, and is designed for all swimmers, beginners and advanced, who are looking for new ways in swimming training.

Exercise Dependence

Exercise dependence or addiction has been described as a 'positive addiction', but it can have links with damaging dysfunctional and excessive behaviours, including eating disorders. Clinical and sport psychologists now acknowledge the condition and report that it can be found in recreational exercisers and competitive athletes. This is the first text to provide a comprehensive guide to exercise dependence. The text contains case studies and reviews research into exercise dependence in both 'exercise' and 'sports' contexts. The authors examine the condition in the widest sense, exploring different types of exercise dependence, risk factors associated with the condition, the experiences and motivational characteristics of sufferers, links with eating disorders, and a number of approaches to counselling. This text will be of significant interest to psychologists working in sport, health and clinical practice, as well as to athletes and sports coaches, particularly those involved in endurance sports associated with higher incidences of exercise dependence.

Running in the Zone

Twenty-six runners ranging in age from 46 to 76 share their secrets, motivations and experiences in the fields of running. All are active runners and many presently hold world age-class records. Some have held world records and have achieved world level performances at the Olympics, Commonwealth and European games. But, Running in the Zone isnt about super achievement, it is about getting the most out the running experience regardless of age or even ability. This book is for anyone interested in running and running-related sports, whether they are elite age-class runners wanting to keep up performances or newcomers, considering taking up running in their middle or even advanced years. Many of the contributors didnt start running until they were over 40 and some didnt achieve their best personal performances until they were in their 50s. You will meet men and women who have a life-long interest in running as well as those who took it up as personal challenges. All are inspiring in one way or another and have something valuable to teach, not necessarily about running, per se, but rather personal satisfaction, giving back through voluntarism and commitment to a goal or purpose. The book was the idea of editors, Steve King and Dan Cumming, and has come together through Steves contacts in the world of running and Dans love of running and editorial ability to pull the best out of a story. Both Steve and Dan have a long-term relationship with the sport. They both perceived that a growing number of older runners are involved in the running and that Running in the Zone would answer many of the needs of this group of active men and women, helping them to get the best out of one of the most fundamental of athletic endeavors.
