I say his best time this year in outdoors is 3:50... can't really see him coming back.

I agree, he just turned 26. He is definitely over the hill. No one the American record holder in the mile can beat German now. sarcasm

Webb and his partner took it out alone obviously and traded lead back and forth a couple times till Webb took over the top spot and brought it home. He was a bit pissed because the meet didn't have any clocks running, so he couldn't check his splits. It was also cool to see Alissa Harvey thump all the collegiate girls.
webb is better then this

He should have raced and won the 400, 500 and 1000 as well. What a shitty meet.

Those are some slow mile and 800 times for college athletes. I realize it is early in the indoor season, but are those typical times for runners at those schools?

I mean 4:04 and 1:52 is not much. How can a guy run 1:43 and then only be able to run 1:52. That's nearly 5 seconds per 400M. Something just isn't right with him running this slow. Not hating on Webb but I do not think he will ever be an international threat again or something was up the year he ran 1:43 and 27:30.

do you really think he was trying?

Watch the video, especially the 800m. It looked like he was just lollygagging it, and then he made up 3 sec in one lap.

His splits for the 800:

26.4 (Joseph up a second)
54.3 (27.9) (Joseph up ~2 seconds)
1:23.8 (29.5) (Joseph up almost 4 seconds)
1:52.0 (28.2) (Joseph up a few tenths)

Splits for the mile:
30.8 (extra 9 meters)
30.6
30.7
31.1
30.7
31.2
30.7
28.9

I'm not sure what to make of this. Basically it is a mile a bit quicker then 2 mile pace, and then an 800 a bit quicker then mile pace. If they were ran as a workout and not as races, that is good news. However, from the interview, it sounds like they were ran as races, even if they were not all out. Only Alan knows how hard he ran those races, but from just observing the videos, it looks like I was giving a pretty decent effort-certainly not all out, but I don't see him in better then 1:47/3:55 shape at the moment.

His form hasn't improved at all-if anything it has gotten worse-he has bulked up even more and still muscles his way around the track with his short, choppy stride. I think most of his recent problems come from his mechanics, compare all of his races in 2008 to those in 2007. Hell, even compare them to his high school 3:53 mile.

He never ran 1:43 and 27:30 in the same season.

I was wondering who that dude was in their group at Burke. I figured it was just Richard Smith coming back to train with Webb again. I didn't have my glasses on to really notice though.

He ran fine. A flat 200m track is not conducive for fast times. Also, it looked like he made up a lot of ground on the last 200m of the 800m; I think he had a lot left.
