  • Ritzenhein 14.04,75

    A 20x300m workout with Adam Goucher and Jorge Torres on Tuesday didn:t hurt Dathan Ritzenhein:s midwest race plans (finish in the top-5 and move on to the NCAA meet), as Ritzenhein won the NCAA Midwest Regional 5,000m in 14.04,75. NCAA scene is shaping oddly after Alistair Cragg skipped his regional meet with injury problems...Lets run states Cragg may miss nationals.

    I haven't been able to find out how Torres training has been going lately. It seems around here that the many top quality runners are mostly ignored after they graduate from college.

    I know that as recently as April he had ramped up his miles to over 100 per week, after sustaining an injury earlier this year, which caused him hip flexor problems as he tried to train while compensating for the original injury, a torn gluteus muscle.

    At that time he felt he was well behind his schedule, as he is targeting 13:20 or better by the OT's.

    I've seen Jorge around town many, many times, as it almost seems that somehow fate would have it that his training runs pass my location an uncanny number of times. I can tell you, from seeing him run on those occasions, that his routine training pace is far faster than most could ever imagine. He doesn't just pass by when I see him, he flies by every single time.

    His running style is so efficient that if you aren't paying attention, it can be a shock when he passes by, because his running is almost silent. And he never even looks like he's broken a sweat. He should have a very bright future on the world track scene.
