Sprint Drama & NCAAs: 400m Hurdles & Sub 4 High School Madness, Ethiopian 10k Champs

1 year ago

What a week. 3 high schoolers (Gary Martin, Connor Burns, Rheinhardt Harrison) went sub-4 in the mile in the same week with 2 in the same race! We had 2 men go sub 8 in the same steeple for the first time since 2012, we had some 400m hurdle madness from Sydney McLaughlin and Karsten Warholm for every different reasons, a Scot beat all the Ethiopians at the 10,000m champs, and right before this podcast recorded major twitter drama broke out between Sha'Carri Richardson and Rae Edwards.

Plus the NCAA Track and Field Championships are this week.

  • End AIRWAAV® ENDURANCE Performance Mouthpiece is here!

(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.
