Holy crap, that's ridiculous! 18:41 for a 4 mile tempo. Also known as 4:40/mile pace. The most hilarious part of that was the 3 x 150 he did at 16 mph. Those are some industrial strength mills they're running on!

I know if I ever tried a TM at a 3:45 pace, nobody would be foolish enough to stand behind me. Very Happy

I thought Rupp's form was interesting to watch. So little of his foot made ground contact that it seemed he was just pushing off like you'd do while riding a skateboard. Cool.

What's crazy is how comfortable he looks at 16mph. And when you consider that he ran 15.8 or 15.9mph for 3:50 just before this I guess it makes sense.

I remember when I was 16 and training at a place called Peak Performance we had to try and run at least 20mph for 10 seconds on the 'mill. They had a spotter behind us in case we needed to be caught off the back!

What's crazy is that I remember reading some guy from college ran at 27 or 28mph for 10 seconds to set the record at that site.

I think I remember reading Usain Bolt ran over 30mph during his record-breaking runs but I could be wrong. It's really impressive how fast that is.

As impressive as that workout was, I don't know if I've ever seen a bigger tactical error in a big race than he made in the 3,000 today. That was just all kinds of terrible.

The 150m "blow outs" I saw did not make much sense to me. He runs them so easily that he's not really taxing his body, removing much lactate, or recruiting the last few fast twitch fibers he will need at the end of a winning race. 150meter hill sprints at 15mph at 5-8% grade would have been better IMHO. Maybe that's why he only won silver last year. Smile
