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.
