    Thoughts on Norman running so fast so early?

    A time this fast so early in the season is obviously unprecedented. Any concerns on him still running his fastest later in the Yr. Continuing to build off of this...?

    Are reasonable and even soft projections of him running sub 43 by the end of the season (health permitting) crazy?
    I'm no training guru, but with proper periodization, methinks a fast time now can "easily" be duplicated a long 5-odd months from now. That's like a whole new season.

    Gotcha. So it’s almost like he go thru another “cycle” in his training program. As opposed to a “constant build” from this point in his season??
    If that makes sense.

    Correct. I train for 2 peaks per year. They are 4 months apart. There are a bunch of periodization methods in modern training - linear, reverse, block, and undulating. So there are lots of ways to structure your year(s) for optimal performance.

    MJ was injured during the Bailey-Johnson 150m showdown in Toronto.

    I think after that was also the first time they created the WC bye since Johnson was injured and couldn't run at Trials, but was the defending world champion.

    To me, what Benjamin did was even scarier than Norman's performance.

    Ha...scratched the surface! With the rate of force that these gentlemen are delivering, who needs a performance facility with less force reduction?
