Yes, it is Sunday. Are you getting your long run in?
Make sure that you watch the World Athletics Championships, July 15-24, 2022. It will be on NBC, Peacock TV, and USA Network. This is the meet schedule.
One of the most amazing events on the schedule is the steeplechase. Seven and one-half laps of a 400m track and the competitors will hurdle 28 barriers and seven water jumps. It requires the speed of a miler and the agility of a hurdler. I used to teach my steeplers how to high hurdle on the grass and then practice the water jump by landing in a long jump pit.
The men’s and women’s 3000m will be terribly challenging in Eugene. The best athletes in the event are from Morocco, Kenya, Ethiopia, and the United States.
Watch Evan Jager, the 2016 Olympic silver medalist and 2017 WC bronze medalist. Emma Coburn, on the women’s side, won the 2016 Olympic bronze and the WC gold in 2017 and silver in 2019! Both are in fine shape in 2022!
Your workout today, July 10, 2022 is, warm up, long run, conversational pace, of 50 minutes, in a park, and then, cooldown and hydrate.
