Lydiard is a training developmental system that consists of a series of phases, each emphasizing a specific development and ordered so that the phases build on the development preceding it. This structure is the Lydiard Pyramid, that essentially starts with the slower paces and builds aerobic mileage first and then trades off mileage for intensity as the athlete progresses up the pyramid. The goal is to precipitate a peak performance on the date of the goal race. This phasing was the basis of what exercise physiologists later termed “periodization.”
