    Re "Bad Training"

    Among the errors this covers: poor selection or placement of training tasks,
    improper progression of workload,
    insufficient recovery, inadequate or incorrect technical instruction,
    inappropriate competition, or any of the
    myriad other possibilities for misadventure... in short, bad training. Every
    factor must be reviewed after any
    injury occurs, to insure the greatest likelihood of avoiding a recurrence.

    I was 11 when Ben ran that race in Perth. I can still remember vividly the blazing first 60- the power and speed were just incredible

    seriously, what was the 60 mark in?

    Hot sure what he went through 60m in, but he'd just broken the 60m record and had a 3.5m/ sec tailwind...so would have been out there. Totally blew Alan Wells away and then backed right off.
