45 minutes for a pure sprinter is a grey area where you don't want to be, and this is probably what Mike Holloway is complaining about. It is too long to hold your warmup after the 100. But a full warmup for the second event takes about that long. You are not going for quite a full warmup for the second event, but 45 minutes isn't enough for any kind of rest and any kind of warmup. What you want is 2 hours. They are giving ~90 minutes in the OT.
You also do not want 1 or 2 days. Force goes up exponentially with speed and the force level at 9.84 is so high that it can take 7-10 days to fully recover. Go back to the 2008 OT with Tyson Gay, and see what happened.
Ok, that sounds sensible. Thanks!
