stupidity about injuries... wrote:
It just AMAZES me how IGNORANT people are about injuries. Hasay didn't waste a couple years, she got injured and didn't get back in top shape until AFTER the Olympic trials. You can't take an extended break and just come back faster than you were with years of build up. That takes time. In professional sports, most athletes don't get back to peak productivity until at least a year after injury.
No matter how much people like to hate on the Oregon project they seem to be very good at training for the marathon.

she was in this sort of fitness exactly two years ago, but never had the chance to show it, as she picked up the PF. real shame about the plantar, because that one is a real bitch to get rid of (as evidenced by her long return to form). Sure she basically lost two years to injury but another way to look at it is that perhaps she prolonger her career by a year or two...
Either way, I'm looking forward to her knocking it out of the park in BOS.
+1 for all of the above.
