Bannister had two (Chataway and Brasher) when he broke the four minute mile - times that by 26....

Consider this. He did 100m in 17 seconds. A fair pace, for most people beyond their reach.

He then did it 422 times in a row.

:shock:


The challenge I ask anyone when talking about this is to sprint for 100m at that pace like you said... I run a lot and I can barely get near it. It is phenomenal.
Would love to see someone do it in a race though. I don't mind the pacers but the bit that I didn't like was the reverse 'V' formation by the pacers which took all wind out and gave a nice drag.


Absolutely, the whole thing was set up for him to do it, but nonetheless it's amazing.

I'd say 80% of the population, or more, wouldn't be able to do a 17 second 100m once.


Or whack your treadmill up to 21 km/h (if it can reach that pace) and see if you can hold that speed for 10 s?

He averaged approx 21.2 km/h for a 1:57 hrs

As Craigy said to the 3rd year Exercise and Sports Science Students at the CK (College of knowledge Underdale) in 1993 - elite athletes different species. Different DNA to you and I....

Yup, absolutely amazing performance.

I can accept the pace makers, I can accept them running in a V in front of him, I can even accept that they stopped and started at different points and didn't run the full "race".
I can look the other way at the specially constructed course with banked corners.
I'm totally fine with moving the start time to suit the best weather conditions.

But the one thing that leaves me thinking it went too far was the fact they drove a vehicle in front of him that had a lazer beam pointed on the ground to highlight not only the most efficient path, but also gave them a pace to keep them on time.

Don't get me wrong, it's still an impressive effort, but its all a little too artificial for my liking.

If anything it gives incentive for an attempt under regular race conditions....

COVID-19 has turned everyone into hikers and joggers! The trails have never been busier, especially in Belair NP. Incredible how many families are out and about.

Same here in Melbourne MW the bike paths are full of walkers and bikes. In some ways that’s a good thing though.

Definitely a good thing my only concern is they'll close the parks down as everyone is using them

Footy back on the agenda...been doing a little bit on the bike and plenty of 4 & 5 k walks during the lockdown. Think I will head down to the oval tomorrow to jog/trot a few laps and some short ahem, sprints so I’m good to go in say 6 weeks time for local footy. That’s the timeline I’m hearing over here in Melbourne.

Gentle trot to say the least. Half a lap in on RMIT oval and I could feel the hammy getting tight. Knees were stuffed after cricket season so the extra 8 weeks rest due to Corona was a blessing for me. Did some centre square run throughs but was cooked in 15 minutes! I reckon I have 8 weeks to get ready to umpire local footy. Not sure when ump training starts again just yet.
