Your weekly running and track and field fix

Winners and Losers from Pre, USATF 10,000m Champs, Micah Williams 9.86, + where were the fans?

1 year ago

An amazing Prefontaine Classic took place at an amazing new Hayward Field. We break it all down and ask where were the fans? Plus, recaps of the USATF 10,000m champs at Pre, and talk of the 9.86 by 20-year-old Oregon sprinter Micah Williams.

Show notes below:

(Sponsor) The AIRWAAV® ENDURANCE Performance Mouthpiece is here! Airwaav is a relatively new training tool that launched late in 2020 after nearly 16 years of research. Now they have the ENDURANCE model that provides a more snug fit, keeping the mouthpiece in place for endurance athletes who relax their jaw during long-distance workouts or races. The AIRWAAV performance mouthpiece fits along your bottom teeth and directs your tongue down and forward creating the “optimal airway opening” resulting in:

  • Increased airway opening by up to 25% resulting in an immediate 28.5% respiratory rate reduction during a steady-state run
  • Increased endurance — by reducing respiratory rate by 20%, resulting in less lactic acid production
  • Faster recovery times — by reducing cortisol build-up by up to 50%

LetsRun listeners can save 10% with the code "LR10" Dig into the science and put AIRWAAV to the test. Click here to try it out.
