A brief interruption on the Sprint training update for a congratulations to Ryan (for those who follow the blog, that kid in the form video I posted a couple weeks ago) on a big PR, running 9:04 for 3200 at regionals. Unfortunately only the top 2 move onto state (he was 3rd), but you really can’t complain with an 14sec PR at the biggest meet of the year. Plus, as a Junior, he’s still got another year. (Edit: Tonight, Ryan finished off his season running 4:15, getting 4th behind two 4:10’s and a 4:13).
Once his season is done, I’ll post some training excerpts from the last season so that you can get an idea of how the whole training is integrated, instead of just reading my random rants on particular topics.
