ya he uploaded his 10 year history to strava.. he said after, he had like ~700 or so course records after the upload hah.

also ya last week he'd run 20-35 milers, but also sometimes 15+ in the morning and 15+ in the evening etc..

crazy stuff.

i've seen people who put in crazy distance on strava before but they aren't usually anywhere as fast as him.

social fitness-media is awesome, especially with running.. it's so easy to track/see progress/history etc.

some dude i've raced against etc.. he's fast. 40+ runner, seems to always win the "masters division" or whatever, but also wins the overall sometimes. He's still knocking out sub 5 mile races, 16:XX 5K's etc. I follow him on strava and i'm not sure how he busts out such impressive 5k's without much speed training. He's got a ton of experience so i'm sure that also helps.

he got crazy fast since 2008, very impressive.

in my fast races, he always blows past me around ~1.5-2 miles in, lmfao.

he blogs some stuff too: http://www.runsouthflorida.com/good-timing-by-spencer-d-west/

man these Kenyan IG channels put out some seriously good info .. it's incredible. They give you some really great details & training footage. They also seem to love answering questions..

This is my favorite so far:

instagram.com/kenya_experience_iten/

This one is pretty good too:

Jake and Zane Robertson .. very responsive on IG.

instagram.com/jakehtbz/

instagram.com/runninelvis/



asked them about Kenyan warmups and such, how often, when, how long:

Quote
jakehtbz @andrewdarqui I sometimes do it after a easy run and it will take about 20mins. When I do it pre workout it's for activation rather then strengthening & it takes 6 to 10 mins. Jogging just dosen't awaken all the muscles.

good stuff.

great interview, touches mindset & her new approach to training, doubling up 4-6 days per week, getting in a rest day.. "volume the same, just distributed differently".

someone i learn from on strava.. 4:12 miler.

my q:

Quote
Andrew Darqui Hey Kevin, i'm in a pretty flat area but I do have one "hill" (like ~50ft lol) nearby, and a park 20 or so minutes away which has more hills like that.. Do you think eventually it would be beneficial to do some running on that incline? ie, do you seek out hills on occasion as a strength tool? I know several people who just run "elevation" for the fun of it, not necessarily as a supplementary tool for their speed etc. So wondering if you use hills to supplement/enhance your speed? peace man!

his answer:

Quote
Kevin O'Brien Hey Andrew! I think hills seem to help a lot. Builds plenty of strength and less risk of injury. During winter and spring i do hills once a week. Check out my Saturday sessions in 'Welchtown'. Here i do about 12 hills from 200m to about 350m with a gentle jog back down. It seems like you are flying at the moment too. Big mile race in you soon!!


That first part is important: "I think hills seem to help alot". He feels it really helps his strength & power.

I mean, common knowledge is to do hills, but just wanted to hear from someone this fast & what he thinks about it. Seems like they are an important off-season tool for him.

Cool stuff.. going to start implementing them in January after my deload.. which is basically the start of my "off season" lol.

peace

"in kenya we run by the clock so I don't know how many miles I run" :ninja: :o

Quote
kenya_experience_iten World Champion over 5000m Helen Obiri speaking about the Kenyan way of training and how the predominantly western obsession over milage/volume is not shared in Kenya
🇰🇪
"How many miles a week do you run?" is a question almost every runner will have encountered (or asked) many times. In Kenya is not really considered as an important factor - there are many things which go together to make up a training program and considering overall volume (milage) is not really that important in isolation
🇰🇪
GPS watches are starting to filter into Kenyan running, but for the overwhelming majority they still run with a basic stopwatch and daily runs will be determined by the duration; not much attention is paid to the exact distance travelled in that time.

planning on starting to use "hills" in jan .. and just saw this:



Quote
Moiben Road. A favourite training destination for Kenyan athletes living in Iten, Eldoret and other surrounding towns
🇰🇪
Considered 'flat' compared to much of the surrounding countryside it would still be considered a very hilly run for most
🇰🇪
Hills must now be the main Kenyan 'secret' in an era when the 'secrets' of Kenyan running have been reported time and again
🇰🇪
Run hills as often as you can through your normal day to day running and reap the benefits

awesome.

bro. Seen you getting Vo2 max tested, remember that's only theory what counts is the spirit & the training that defines how good you want to be.

nice part about, staying with the lead pack:

Quote
🇰🇪
Despite large gaps on the mens side come the finish line, the race highlighted something we have discussed a few times - mainly being the African mentality of stay with the leaders as long as you can!
🇰🇪
At 30k the lead pack was still 6 strong but just 12kilometres later 4 minutes separated the first 6 runners at the finish line
🇰🇪
A risky strategy which can lead to a really difficult last few kms of the race if you get it wrong, but for the ones who get it right the rewards are obvious

The top 6 runners were basically all 1 minute slower than each other, but were together at 30km of 42km. I think that illustrates "The Kenyan Way" nicely.
