Anyone know what training German was on in HS? I was at that CA meet and my jaw dropped after his double. That was the most "beautiful" HS distance running I had ever seen. LV and German are definitely different cats. German is a gorgeous rhythm runner who gets into a groove and can keep applying the pressure on himself. LV has that amazing loping stride but seems to be more of a strength runner with his years of cross training. German is going through a tough time with physical injuries and yeah, I'll say it, mentally, he's not right. He seems to be expecting disappointment in his races and training, like he can't trust himself, his body any more. He needs a mental adjustment - maybe it will take him popping a couple of good times to get back in the groove. Or a year without any injuries. Sure LV will have an adjustment in college, also, but will be exciting to watch.
