if I was skeptical before. i'm mostly convinced now.
Something you joggers should understand is that not all world records are equal. Not all events WRs are of the same standard.
The Men's 400 is a stronger than the Women's 400 record.
Women's distance is largely soft. Some ladies will get it, and then start to improve. Here's an example.
You guys picture yourself as pretty good runners. You really aren't. The improvement with these times is mainly a mental breakthrough rather than a physical one. Its why they can suddenly drop time.
Soon as an athlete learns to really embrace the pathway, they run faster. When they lose it, they get real slow.
You guys couldn't find the performance path with a GPS. You can see it from these forums. You think its all about miles and hours, and intervals and hills.
