Making a comeback

    At any mileage...a 200m all out would break all my tendons. It was why I ended up injured most of college.

     

    Marby - that’s a very smart plan with the double taper.

     

    JT - Hassan is in superb form, let’s see how she keeps it until August

     

    DPS - we’re all different but I’d reckon that the much, MUCH shorter bouts of 1500m workouts would be easier on your body. You’d also be running way less mileage.

    I miss running 100s and 200s all out.

      How interesting, we are indeed all very different. You are freakishly strong to be able to run these 100 mile weeks, I'd assume your body to be more resilient. Perhaps there's something going with your proprioception (is that the word?) due to past injuries.

      PRs: 1500m 4:54 (2019) 3K 10:34 (2019) 5K 17:56.7 (2021) 9.86K 36:40 (2020) HM 1:21:59 (2021)

        I think it's the difference between a maximal load for a short bit of time, and a sub-maximal load for a longer period of time.  Two different types of stresses.

        Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

         

        And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

        Making a comeback

          I think this is a pretty spot on. Again, I'm a big guy for a runner relative to people running similar times (6ft... 170-5 lbs). Also I hit the ground hard when I run, you can here me coming. My foot strike are not a quiet glide....I pound the ground. I have a buddy (5'8" 125) who make almost no noise other than his breathing and just glides along. That is also a factor I think.

          Running Problem


          Problem Child

            I think it also shows the difference between a college athlete level of ability and the "average" person. I just watched the ACC 5k and the winner did a 4:30/mi pace for almost every lap then ran something like a 62 second 400m at the end of the race. I just assume it feels the same as me running a 5:37 mile and it is just a matter of athletic ability.

            Many of us aren't sure what the hell point you are trying to make and no matter how we guess, it always seems to be something else. Which usually means a person is doing it on purpose.
