  1. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    And I inadvertently copied it! Funny how the brain works (or doesn’t).
  2. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    I seem to be one that handlers cooler weather better; on the contrary, hot is not my thing. I don't have a lot of muscle, so perhaps that is a part of the reason (6'0", 167lb).
  3. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    I am from Milwaukee, WI, which has some cold falls and springs. Meets spanning 4/1-5/15 will seldom be above 70 degrees (F). Anything over 55 is pretty warm. My 100m PB came at a night meet where...
  4. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Discussing politics on a track forum has about as much of an effect as running wickets in practice.
  5. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Exactly. Vertical integration, speed being specific to itself, tempo being beneficial, keeping lifting general, etc. These foundational principles will always hold. My best results have always...
  6. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Hopefully they looked around the site after or checked out some of Charlie's materials.
  7. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    200s and 400s have been darn good the last couple of seasons, so something favorable is happening at those distances across track and field.
  8. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    You can only “Trust the Process” for so long when there are no results.

    Perhaps the whole walking around practice barefoot thing isn’t working either.

    He still snagged third in tough conditions. Credit due.

    Re: RB34 Training Journal

    That's great to have a baseline from which to measure your progress. One of my core speed workouts has consisted of around 3x30m blocks (before the maxV runs), where I time every one of them. I've...

    Re: Master Sprint Times

    Exactly! It's like they are saying Neapolitan pizza is outdated.

    "You need to throw some pepperoni, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes on there. And while you're at it, use a cream sauce instead."

    Re: Master Sprint Times

    I agree with you here. There are realities with age, but I do believe a lot of people "check out" too early. Everyone on my club started referring to themselves as old when they hit 30. "I mean,...

    Re: Master Sprint Times

    Some local guys are trying to get me to do masters (at age 35!). I can't bring myself to think about age-based competitions when Justin Gatlin just dropped a 9.87 at age 37. Age 40 is the bare...

    Re: Chris6878's journal.

    Yeah, man. I was pretty upset, which probably caused me to dip out of track convos for a while. 9 out of 10 injuries, I know exactly went wrong (e.g., overtaining, fatigued at end of workout, tight...

    Man, out there racing! Way to grab the W.

    This was the first season since I came back to track in 2009 where I didn't get an outdoor time. I pulled up at the mid-point of my first 100m this...

    I have a document with both the short-to-long and long-to-short graphs. I contacted Angela, so hopefully we can find a way to get it in your hands soon.

    I kid you not: the content of that link is different now than it was the other times I hit. Not sure how Flotrack updates stuff, but every time I hit it earlier today brought me to the Women's NCAA...

    Speaking of right decisions, how about Michael Norman sticking with Carolyn Smith-Gilbert as his head coach:

    I fully believe in the CF approach, but it is interesting to see how some people respond well to training on the other end of the spectrum. This is my first year not coaching in 10 years at the...

    Re: 9.98

    Man, that is an old school workout. They are calling a 52 400m for a 44.7 kid "quality."
