Subject: RE: Attention: Even if Alan Webb does not make the team, he will still run very fast in Europe this summer
His mile equates to 3:30.1 and that was the same season as his 3:30.5.
I just don't think he has the same physical body that he had 5 years ago.
The amount of seconds he dropped in two weeks may be more indicative of the type of race and the competition than actual fitness gained.
I would say he is sharper.
He said he is ignoring his distant past and I am as well.
So I look at him as a guy that ran 3:37 last year and 3:36 the year before.
Getting to mid 3:35 this year would be good, like most of the other 10 guys that finished ahead of him in that last race.
A real breakthrough at age 29 after more than 10 years competing at an elite level would be a huge break from the norm.
But odds do get beaten from time to time and it would be great if he went under 3:32 again.
I am just trying to place the odds where they belong in this case.
