MTSU team trials - wow

The MTSU track team has been doing really tough workouts this year.  Track intervals 4 days a week, hills one day, weights 3 days.  The team time trials were this week and wow...

Emanual T.  from Uganda ran a 29.3 300yds (yes, yards... don't know why) and a 56.7 500m.   Stunning.   He could beat me by nearly 100m in a 400.  He has run 45.95 in the 400m.  Could be nationally competitive.  Again, don't know why they were racing 300yds, but by standard conversion factor, ET ran a 32.5 300m.  Close to world class.

Hard work pays off.  Go team.

  1. units of distance are irrelevant..units can be in hands, feet, toes...it is the energy mechanism being trained that is important. guessing, the design criteria was a 30 second effort at some speed, which equated to ~ 300 yards.
