Breaking the 2 minute barrier in the 800m is a great goal for many. Sometimes wanting to run sub-1:45 like David Rudisha isn’t always the best goal.😆
What’s your next goal?⤵️

Hello, it’s @jaredhefner the person behind Global Peak!
Today I bring you my first ever race. This 100m is an important part of my story. As soon as the gun went off and I came out of the blocks for the first time in a race, I was hooked on the sport.👟
Although my time was FAR from amazing, I still managed to win the slow heat easily.🤣
(Guess my time)⤵️
After facing immense disappointment at the conclusion of my senior season in high-school, and deciding not to go to college.
Global Peak was born.🌀
I hope to compete again one day, somewhere. But more importantly I want to create a community that empowers people to always put their best foot forward, and have a positive impact on the lives of others. That is my dream.
Be great. Be you.🌀

Great athletic spirit all round, everyone loves a bit of healthy friendly competition! So good to see athletes helping each other realize their best! 🏃♀️ @hannah.cadden "You and your opponent want the same thing. The only thing that matters is who works the hardest for it." Was definitely telling myself this during 30 x 200ms! 😅 #theworkgotdone 📸: @corrina.cadden

Here's some early test footage of the ShockWave which is @Vertimax 's experimental speed development system. I designed the ShockWave to mitigate or eliminate everything we don't like about overspeed training. Since training at top end speed with resistance should theoretically efficiently target developing more ground strike force at top end speed, I added a twist allowing a seamless transition from an assisted overspeed run into a resisted overspeed run. I had 5 main goals.⠀
(1) Keep resistance relatively constant throughout the run to promote stability & mitigate the involuntary braking effect on ground strike when we hit overspeed. ⠀
(2) to eliminate any barrier in front of the runner so we don't have to worry about slowing down to avoid running into whatever is pulling us. Nothing is more frustrating than hitting that euphoria of overspeed and 1 second later having to hit the brakes and slow down to avoid running into a wall or whatever is pulling you.⠀
(3) Since strength gains from resistance training best manifest themselves at the velocity you conduct the resisted reps at why not apply resistance to a human in overspeed or at near top end speeds to improve ground strike force? - hence let's transition to a resisted run as the runner at overspeed passes through the ShockWave. ⠀
(4) Let's try to keep it as safe as possible and⠀
(5) In the end, let's hopefully wind up with a more efficient overspeed tool.⠀
I was ShockWave's Patient Zero. The first time I tried it I told myself to keep my effort level at about 70% just to keep things safe. As I began to accelerate everything felt so good my brain just said "to hell with 70%" and my legs just took off! I hit overspeed in 15 to 20 meters my biggest surprise was that involuntary braking effect we've all experienced when something pulls us (disrupting sprint mechanics) was nonexistent allowing me to focus 100% on running technique, cycling fast & no worries about having to slow down! The transition into a resisted run was seamless I could drive & then decelerate smoothly over the next 70 meters. I'm happy to answers questions and start constructive discussions about making progress. Cheers.
Ura in pol pogovora, ki je minila, kot da bi bili skupaj deset minut. Odličen sogovornik pred diktafonom, za fotoaparatom pa človek, zaradi katerega sem v zadnjem desetletju bolj malo časa posvetil atletiki. Predvsem zaradi tega, ker je on to počel tako dobro. Zdaj žal že nekdanji sodelavec s Sportala Peter Kastelic, ki po novem kraljico športa popularizira na Atletski zvezi Slovenije. Tudi zaradi Luke Janežiča pa prihajajoče dvoransko evropsko prvenstvo, ki bo od 1. do 3. marca v Glasgowu, prvič po daljšem času z nestrpnostjo pričakujem in ga bom z veseljem spremljal. Malce zagotovo tudi zaradi njegove odločne napovedi pred odhodom na Škotsko. "Zdaj sem že tako dober, da se ne morem zadovoljiti s petim mestom. Grem po medaljo," je napovedal slovenski rekorder v teku na 400 metrov v intervjuju, ki si ga boste lahko jutri zjutraj prebrali na www.siol.net. 🎙: @janezicluka 📸: @peter_kastelic (@atletska_zveza_slovenije) #slovenia#ljubljana#atletika#trackandfield#400m#intervju#interview#sobotni intervju #saturday#lukajanezic
