    Re: The way of the "400" Thanks to KK

    If you can do 6x200m at a pace that is 3s slower than your 200m PB (with perfect technique) and this pace is the same as your last 200m of the quarter mile AND you are also in 200m PB shape then I...

    That's the whole point of having a coach. It's all very good to come on here and ask questions etc but as an athlete what you really need to do is find a good coach and trust them to get you better.

    Re: Bottom of foot

    There are so many potential issues here. You need to get this fixed as you can't run well in pain. Training on it will only make things worse and you will start changing your mechanics to avoid the...

    Maybe your lack of reactivity is just you and not a deficit in your training. By all means try things out but be careful not to overload yourself and get injured trying to improve it. Often it is...

    Re: Dwain Chambers: Why such a radical change?

    I think the key thing here is that he is getting old (and hence dealing with slower recovery and increasing injuries) yet continuing to perform at a high level. Yes his times are subpar compared to...

    I was! Just watching it on TV unfortunately... ;-) My experience is with athlete in the 45-47/51-55 range so usually with them it takes a little longer to achieve the target times and hence I needed...

    Re: The way of the "400" Thanks to KK

    To achieve the 5-6x200m for a developing quarter miler you will probably have to go through a progression like:

    3x200m
    2x200m [5min] 2x200m
    3x200m [5min] 2x200m
    3x200m [5min] 3x200m
    5x200m...
