Oregon Project coach Alberto Salazar said Rupp was running in an experimental pair of shoes, and began to feel pain in his left foot. Salazar said the pain was later determined to be in the soft tissue at the bottom of his foot.
Rupp changed to his training shoes and warmed down without pain. Then he put on his old spikes and did a demanding postrace workout.
"It was a fantastic workout," Salazar said. "He's fine."
Mr. Salazar, we know you read these boards. Please stop looking for that extra edge. It shouldn't be about who has the best shoes, the best track or the best maybe legal medication. It should be about who is the best.
Letsrun or fans, did anyone see Rupp doing the workout post-race?
