Keith Livingstone is a chiropractor who lives in Bendigo, Australia, with his wife and five children. He grew up right on Arthur Lydiard’s doorstep amidst the running boom of the mid 1970s.
For over ten years Keith was nationally ranked as a distance runner in both New Zealand and Australia, over road, track, and cross-country, and he won a number of regional titles. He knew, raced, or trained with many of the great runners in New Zealand and Australia during the “golden era.”
In 1990 Keith helped his current coaching colleague John Meagher to a debut marathon time of 2 hours 16 minutes, and later to a Melbourne Marathon victory, triathlon titles, and three titles in the World Masters Games. Their “HIT Squad” currently boasts three nationally ranked senior 1500m runners.
Currently Keith is the main presenter of Healthy Intelligent Training Endurance Seminars. Where he explains the “what” and the “why” of Arthur Lydiard’s training methods in modern day physiology terms for the modern athlete and coach.
