RE: Solomon suddenly world class and Rupp soloing 3.50 indoor miles - Come on Letsun, ask the questions!
To which I would add that last year Rupp ran one second faster (3:34) at most, and that was at the end of a hard week. His race today, on a very fast track, is perhaps a bit better. We should also remember Rupp can run 11.0 for 100 meters and low 50s for 400. The guy has run 26:48: what would we expect for today? I think what we got. Last year there were twenty-four different guys who ran sub 3:34 at least once.

Yes, pathetic, and the fact that it is not a thread started by anyone using their own name, or even an established handle.

It's just bullshitt.


Solomon's progression doesn't look unusual.


"Running on Empathy" and a bunch of people have been pointing out that Rupp's mile time was weak for years, and that he was capable of more.

What was it, last week, someone posted a thread "Has Rupp Ever Been Injured?"

Bob Kennedy advised Salazar of two things when Rupp was discovered as a talent:

1. Bring him along slow.

2. Keep him injury free.


Kennedy pointed out that most important key to his success, was slowly adding the miles over the years, and unbroken training by staying healthy...and of course taking a few weeks off every year.

The OVERWHELMINGLY stupid tragedy of this site is that the World Famous Message Boards talk about the wrong things.

The proper focus is that Rupp has indeed been stewarded with a watchful eye to being him along slowly, keep him uninjured and healthy.[/quote]
