i asked him this:

Hey, maybe I haven't found the video yet.. but what do you eat before a race? specifically an early morning race? I'm wondering about stuff like that.. For example, I try to eat good the day/night before, then I get up at 5 AM & eat light (banana, coffee) because a race may be 7-7:30 AM.

Also uhh.. weird question but.. before races, do your nerves make you go to the bathroom more than usual? I like the nervous/amp'd up feeling, I know it means i'll run faster/harder, but it comes with a bathroom side effect (seemingly for most people).

Finally one more question :D ... I haven't been able to find how you "warm up" before a race (or even a run). It's probably buried in another video.. but i'd love to know what you do before a run and/or race? For example with myself, i've been noticing lately that even though I feel warmed up .... I don't feel nearly as good as I do ~15 minutes after I literally try and PR a mile/400m run.. After I run really hard for a while, a short while after my legs feel really loose/bouncy etc. I don't have that feeling after my normal warmup - which includes a few drills mixed in with progressively more intense runs over the course of ~1.5 miles. I break a sweat but there's a "bouncy" feeling i'm not achieving.. this bouncy feeling is what I get when I feel like I can truly run my best. I'm trying to figure out how to obtain this feeling without taxing myself initially.

peace!!!

Hey! Ok wow, umm so before runs always lots of fruit, mostly bananas, I'll make a smoothie, low fat high carb. Too much fats will make your run feel sluggish the first 6-8 miles, but for a long slow run that's ok to add some coconut milk wt the smoothie, it has a lot of fat, yet don't always doo his, high fat n high carbs causes blood shuger to spike bc the fat stops the absorbotion of shuger into the cells,2.) Yea I go to the bathroom like crazy before races bc of nerves, it's normal, your body wants to be as light as possible bf the race and not have to go during the race.
3.) I'll warm up 3 miles before big 5k 10k and 1/2 races, start slow first mile 8:00 then 7:00 second then 6:00 last, after 2-3 hard strides faster than race pace n some drills like squat jumps. For the marathon, less than a mile but do some strides at race pace, for a mile race you may really need to warm up fast that 3rd or even 4th mile, then do a few 200meter progression strides 2-3 of them with the last 50m almost sprinting, this is important for short races, my shortest race I'll do is a 3k or 2mile, I suck at the mile haha

i asked him a question based on his lack of sponsorships:

Quote
adarqui:
The fact that you don't have any sponsors baffles me.. what would you need to do (or run) to get sponsors? I mean do you simply not run fast enough? In the US, you run at the elite level in 5k, 10k, half -> if i'm not mistaken.. your 5k is sub 13:5x which is NCAA D1 championship level (and pro), 10k is 29:xx which is also NCAA D1 championship level (and pro).. and your half marathon is olympic trials qualifier level (sub 1:05:00).


his reply (really great) .. he's one of us:

adarqui Well, ok so I met a representative from new balence at running camp last month and asked how I liked the shoes I was wearing. We talked for a bit n I asked about sponcerchips, he said well you need to be placing and even winning some races, and their not looking to sponcer anyone right now due to the fact they invested in some athletes already. Basically Im thinking he means that ill need to place 1,2or3 in some big world major marathons like New York City of which ill need to run a sub 2:10 to be accepted into the eliete feild, much of the kenyans n ethopeans are the choice to be sponcered bc there are alot of them to run sub 2:07, for an american, theres galen rubb, meb kafleski who are in that league. So as for times go, Ill have to run 13:00 low 5k, 27:30s or better 10k and a solid 2:08:00 marathon. Thats basically what he seemed to mean. So ill have a while to go. And as for usefull info that athletes can give to the public, well they dont know much about health or anything outside of running it seems, Ryan Hall obv had no knoledge of nutrition n diet, he just did what his sponcers told him to do and he was just an amazing athlete but quite a quiet person n not a great speeker. Im here on youtube so I can get my voice out and help other people because frankly there isnt a really pro athlete that would take it to this level under the social radar to have a direct contact with the people who make this sport happen. I can relate to the masses because I was one of them, not at all a fast runner as a kid and an ok runner in college, I want to teach peoole these methods of training that will mostely work for an ordinary person who wants to work hard and be paitent for 15_20 years before they get to that level, but unfortunately for sponcers, there is no money in a slow process, they just want win win win, like a fad diet that makes you louse weight fast but doesrnt cure your binging eating disorder on crack foods. Im all about lifestyle, create the lifestyle and you will have a long healthy athletic carrier.   No drugs

his spelling is a bit wrecked but whatever.  :wowthatwasnutswtf:

he's detaching for a while.

sounds like he has too much "baggage" attached to running.. definitely can take the purity/enjoyment out of it.

sounds kind of wrecked in this vid.

sux :/
