High School Sophomore Lydiard Training


I ran XC last year as

a freshman and was pretty decent at it (11:30 2 mile pr) but quit late

into the season due to frustration at not improving as much as I wanted



Now I'm playing soccer, and that's kept me in pretty decent

shape but running is my true love. My dad doesn't believe in not

finishing something I've started though, so I'm going to have to stick

with soccer the rest of the season.


Anyway, I've been reading

up on reading and after having weighed Daniels and Lydiard I've opted

Lydiard. I just want to know do you think training using Lydiards style

while playing soccer is going to lead to burnout, injury or anything

like that. Is it even a good idea?


I'm training for outdoor track btw, so the 7 month training program ends with the start of the season.



can currently run for about 40-50 minutes maximum in my current shape

if it matters, and I've been running 2 miles each day for the past one

and a half months.
