Don't get me wrong. I think it is a positive that runners like Symmonds do fun stuff. I appreciate the way they hang out at Millrose and road races, take pictures. I think Bernard Lagat's Speed Golf is fun. But your worth is determined by the product you put on the track, and Symmonds has a good product.
All I am saying is that you don't hear Rudisha talk about training for the Beer Mile.
