Exactly- must be timed by the same coach in the same way. My times were very "happy’ in practice BUT they were consistent and that’s why we could predict within a few hundredths what Ben would run in meets so often.
I’m actually not talking about Texas Relays or those logs, but ironic that they actually do line up there as well.
I know plenty of people who run WAY faster in meets than in practice. That isn’t to say that the goal isn’t to continually improve in practice, but some individuals just aren’t able to run nearly as quickly without some adrenaline.
I do agree here too…also, for many athletes, they just cannot recover form max efforts 3 times a week, even with low volumes, variation of dashes , recovery aids…
Others, want to contually break the world in practice, coaches need to put brakes on most of times, conceding the odd 100% pb effort for also motivational purposes, just on spp…
Last season My partner ran a consistent4.0-3.8 30m hand and dropped a 10.4 auto. I have never been a super fast practice guy myself but 6.5 in a 50 is not fast at all. then he said it like he had just ran fast. And gatlin is not close to a meet at all. So just hope that was a typo.
ha ha found the pic…
Cool…if he still has it , he can outrun Bolt…well, probably after 30m though!!
Is this a serious question???
I don’t know much about Loren Seagrave other than what i’ve read here and on a few other boards over the years. But what do you think the differences in training are, and what do you think the differences in training will bring or take away from Gatlin as far as Trevor vs Seagrave.
It’s pretty clear some of you have more intimate knowledge of the situations.
Will Gatlin’s start and acceleration rate/pattern imrpove?
Will Gatlin be in better overall shape?
Will he still be overstriding?
I think Gatlin may surprise some people, not saying he’s going 9.7 in his first year back. Typical week looked something like this:
Mon: Ext tempo
Wed: Int tempo
Thur: Ext tempo or Light speed
2 complete rest days?
