Full tweet from Symmonds: "someone should remind them its February. Last I checked the games are still in august. #London2012
I couldn't agree more. As an avid twitter follower of Symmonds, it appears that he has done very little race-specific quality work at this point in the season. I'm pretty sure he just tweeted that he ran his first set of 24 second 200s just a few days ago. I could be wrong, but as an 800-miler with half a brain and at least the basic knowledge of periodization, I would bet he isn't planning on being race-sharp in April. From what I can tell, he has a ton of aerobic strength right now, building the perfect foundation for a quality stretch of training come the spring and summer months. 1:47 seems like a great first race to me in February.
