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 longdistance 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.

New Zealander Arthur Lydiard was the most successful trainer of middle- and long-distance running in the world. He coached runners from different countries, such as Peter Snell (three times gold) or Lasse Viren (four times gold). In the 50s and 60s Arthur Lydiard not only revolutionized the middle- and long-distance training, but parallel to this development he may be considered as one of the founders of the jogging movement.

Garth Gilmour is a journalist and was Lydiard's co-author since 1960. He has written biographies of famous athletes Murray Halberg, Peter Snell, Sandra Barwick - world famous as an ultra-distance runner - and paraplegic sportswoman Eve Rimmer.
