|Author: ||faster and faster he goes|
|Subject: ||RE: Webb on pace for World Record based on improvements|
alright guys, enough WR talk.
but, us dudes keep getting stronger throughout our 20's. Last time Alan was healthy he was only 24. I bet he'll just naturally be a bit stronger now than he was then (obviously assuming he's done appropriate training i mean). Also, you can't say he's past his peak years because he's because his last healthy year was basically the start of his peak years, and he's been injured for the rest of them. So we will see him improve on what he did in his "peak years" because he was injured for basically all of him so his best performances are gonna come at a later age (and also therefore won't be as fast as they could have been if he had been healthy this whole time and already peaked).
Judging by his recent double I'd say his 5k is stronger than his 1500 right now. The time itself isn't better than 3:38, but since he had like 25 minutes rest it was. I bet he could run a 13:30-33 5k fresh right now.
Anyway, my point is I wouldn't be surprised to see Alan pop out a 3:34 in a month, and be ready for a 3:32 by the trials, and run right around his 1500 pr by the end of the season (whether he makes the Olympics or not). Also I think 5k will start to take precedence as his secondary event over the 800. I think knocking his 800 further into 1:43 territory will be tough from here on out, but I could see his 5k PR start dropping fast next year.
