Poster: The green mile
Subject: RE: Solomon suddenly world class and Rupp soloing 3.50 indoor miles - Come on Letsun, ask the questions!
I agreed with this as of yesterday. A 3:50 indoor mile changes everything.[/quote]
I'm not sure it changes much for me. It is clear that Rupp has been working on his speed development a lot in the past 2 years. The 1500 equivalent is not out of question compared to his outdoor 1500 from last year. I agree with the poster who says that people from the Salazar grey areas with all the thyroid and everything, but the simple fact is that Rupp has pretty much NEVER been injured. Years of continual improvement have now reaped benefits. Believe me, I want to point the finger at Rupp and say he's dirty, but I just can't.
I have to look at it this way as well: I believe without a doubt that Alan Webb was clean when he ran 3:46 and 1:43 a few years ago. He improved 7 seconds from his high school 3:53 (which everyone thought and still thinks is clean)after a few years of subpar and inconsistent training... why couldn't a guy who ran 4:01 in high school run a 3:50 after several years of uninterrupted training with access to the best training tools and doctors in the world?
