21-yr old Laura Weightman runs 8:43.46 for 3k to open up 2013- imagine if she was in NCAA - she'd be Jenny Simpson 5/15/2013 7:26PM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post

Weightman, at age 21, already is an Olympic 1,500 finalist wiht a 4:02.99 pb.

If she were in the NCAA right now, she'd basically b Jenny Simpson from 2009 but a year younger.

In 2009, Simpson set collegiate records at 3000 and 1,500 (8:42.03 and 3:59.90). Except Simpson with an August bday was 22. Weightman (July bday) is basically doing what Simpson did in college but at a full year younger.

Very impressive.

Brits, it looks like you guys will have a stud to cheer for for the next decade.

coached by steve cram. i know for a fact that in the winter her week conists of something like;

monday: am. 5 miles pm. 8 miles
tuesday: am. 5 miles pm. 8 miles
wednesday: am. 5 miles pm. 8 miles
thursday: am. 5 miles pm. 8 miles
friday: am. 5 miles pm. 8 miles
saturday: am. hard 8 miles
sunday: am. 15 miles

im not trolling either, its pretty much what crammy did in the winter too. ncaa coaches could learn from this, i reckon thats why the likes of hasay etc havent improved much through college...due to the cross/indoor/outdoor seasons and the need to be doing workouts and stay in "good shape" year round. quite sad really. its probably worth noting the similarities between coach wetmore's training and laura's training...a huge emphasis on aerobic development...so yeah i guess the similarities between laura and jenny baringer are somewhat correct.

here is a weightman workout in april, all done on road;

1 x 2 mile, 3 x 1 mile (hard!)

and around about now;

1600m, 3 minutes recovery, 2 x 1000m with 2 minutes recovery, 3 minutes recovery, 800m, 3 minutes recovery, 3 x 400m with 1 minute recovery, 6 x 60m with 10 seconds recovery

and the obvious, 10 x 400m with 1 minute recovery

OLD SCHOOL!

I think at the same meet (not 100% sure it was the same meet) Jessica Judd ran a 2:00.37 800. Some of the zBrits are calling it a world lead. It's not. Brenda Martinez ran 1:59 last week.

Brenda Martinez 1:59 was run on a short track and disallowed.

Sounds like a threat from the 15 to 5k, was crams coaching the primary reason for her not running at college

It's not a short track really. It just didn't have the curb up. Sort of like Notre Dame every year indoors.

This was not about a short track, the issue was about how the "cones" weren't of legal size. I think this is just plain stupid as runners always try to run on the outside. Adding to the topic the meet was USATF sanctioned and had USATF officials running the meet. I think this guys are make a big deal out of a nonsense issue.

You know Cram was not a 90-mpw guy right? And if he is giving a 21 yr old woman this kind of thing, the equivalent for him (who made the Olympic final at 19) would have been running 105-120 at his peak.

He did not do that.

You do know that EPO was not available until 89 or 90 right? Almost 15 yrs after Coe and Ovett were running at a high level?

Cram was a sub-4:00 miler a good eleven yrs before 1990.

Did you mean something different by " Brit EPO era .."?
yyy

I started a thread about the ReRun results being not allowed and no one responded! Pretty sure it's due to there no being a rail as someone has stated....anyone confirm this?

My bad looks like there now another thread on this started today. Had a look at the pics from the meet and you can see that some of the cones are not in the correct position (prob clipped and moved during the races).
Still pretty quick

Imagine if she were a Kenyan or Ethiopian not running for a US college.

Instead of a white English woman not running for a US college

Rojo would not be posting about her.

crammy did 70-90 miles per week, usually around 75. his pb mileage was actually around 120 but he only ever did this once or twice and got the same results out of running 75 miles at 5 minute-6 minute pace. the week i layed out was actually 88 miles. laura runs 70-90 miles, usually around 80. morning runs easy, 8 mile runs usually pretty quick with a university mens group, where she usually drops the men!
