RE: Some free coaching advice for Alberto Salazar
Any time a runner happens to run into the second lane, one of the Brojos chimes in to offer this free "coaching advice," as if it's not 1) the most basic advice a high school coach could offer and 2) something athletes haven't already heard before.
It happens sometimes. But when it does, it's not simply because the coach in question hasn't shared the most basic of bromides with his athletes: you're caught up in the moment, you're focusing just on finishing, it takes more energy to hug the turn, as some posters have already said.
If you want to make the point--easy and predictable as it is--that an athlete who loses out on the world record by .01 should stick more to lane 1, fine. But just say that. And recognize that the realities of racing can sometimes supersede the one stale morsel of "advice" you have to share.
And if you want to pass yourself off as an expert, get some fresher material.
