I have now completed almost 4 momths of base training, and in the next week i will be moving into the next stage of training which will start to include anaerobic work. i am looking to peak for a marathon in late April. this is the first time i have done any real base training since 2004.
since following Arthur Lydiards ideas i have noticed a good improvement in my running and health.
I now have a great base of aerobic fitness, a great foundation on which with power and speed work i can reach a high peak. watch this space I'm about to fly !
