*AtoZrunners Brandon, Andrew, Zach, Hannah, and Kristi all competed on various teams of relays this weekend, running between 5 and 13.1 miles.
#1. Kipyegon narrowly missed WR in 1500m
- At Monaco Diamond League…
- Faith Kipyegon (Kenya) Ran 3:50.37 (record is 3:50.07)
- 2nd fastest time in history
- Holds 6 of the top 13 fastest times ever run (3 of them in 2022 alone)
- 2nd, 5th, 10th-13th
- Americans Heather MacLean and Elise Cranny were 2nd and 3rd in PR times of 3:58 and 3:59
#2. Fisher scored another American Record
- Grant Fisher added another distance to his growing slate of American Records (Holds the indoor 5,000m and outdoor 10,000m)
- At Monaco in the 3,000m
- Berihu Aregawi (Ethiopia) asked for WR pace from the pacers, so it was hot from the gun
- Thierry Ndikumwenayo overtook Aregawi late for a victory and Burundian national record
- Fisher was 3rd in 7:28, half a second under Bernard Lagat’s record
#3. A little more from Hoare after Commonwealth
- In an interesting article from Runner’s Tribe, author Len Johnson reflects on Olli Hoare’s Commonwealth 1500m victory
- Great quote from Hoare comparing CW to WC
- “I made too many mistakes, moving forward and surging, not conserving energy. If you watch, other people stay at the back and really push the last 100, then when you have that mental gap of getting passed that quickly and that aggressively you start to go into a dark place”
- Those lessons were learned clearly, and CW was a much different race
- Apparently, coach Dathan Ritzenhein asked Hoare after WC: “Will you cave in or will you try to progress.”
BONUS: an article about lactate measurements in training
From Runner’s Tribe:
- Speculation on whether measuring blood lactate during a workout can help maximize precision and training stimulus
- The entire premise is how to fine-tine as well as possible the training, but misses the consideration about how an athlete self-regulates and the enduring value of that…
