  • Webb back in action

    In my attempt to lobby for a completely separate forum dealing with all things Alan, he is supposed to be back in action this week-end here:

    Consider this a threat, track fans: Alan Webb will be running this weekend.

      What is your threat? Increased Webb traffic or his potential performance:-).

        Oh, definitely his performance.

        I actually find the traffic pretty amusing.

          if everyone who ever replied in a webb or gabe thread just to push it back to the top of the board would just post right now... mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha! could we bring the internet to its knees?

            Well, Webb is doomed. He's apparently ignoring all the advice on a previous Webb thread that he shouldn't compete in cross country --

              The point of the previous thread was that training for and racing numerous seasons a year was not advantageous to a miler. Hopefully, Webb is using this as a time trial - not to be taken too seriously.

              If he attempts to do more than a few xc races I think it will be a mistake. But to do this one and maybe a couple more short ones (ie. nationals short course) would be appropriate and can fit into a miler's training.

                That was actually EL G's advice. Thus it should be written in stone.

                  There is alot of truth to this. A miler cannot dismiss "The Greatest Miler of All Time" without careful consideration. However, not everyone is alike and while El G thinks xc is a waste of time, I think Webb is simply going back to the formula that worked for him a couple of years ago - the formula that made him the best US prep ever.

                  A few hard and SHORT xc races - to keep training interesting and measure progress. A few races used as time trials is alot different than training for and competing in an entire collegiate season of 10s.

                    You just crossed everything you've been trying to claim on this board in the past couple months. It's good that you've finally admitted that you don't have all the answers. It's also a good thing real coaches don't change training philosophies in such a schizophrenic manner.

                      Little Webb should bow at the knees of EL. G. Everyone should obey EL. G track commandments. When EL. G says not to run cross country you should cut it out of your schedule.

                        If you're referring to me, you obviously haven't read my posts very closely.

                          I don't run cross country but my best 1500 time is only 4:37, hmmmmm. Actually I'm a decathlete so it's ok.
