RunBlogRun opines: Jeff Benjamin is both fan and scribe. During the meet, at a frenetic pace, Jeff sent photos and texts on each of the Magic 13 events at Millrose, plus some of the other fine events of the evening. Jeff's note to me was short and sweet: "Millrose Games was the best event indoors, so far, in the 20th century."

The idea on an easy day is to get some work in, but to do it in a way that you can recover. Hydrate, eat well and sleep well.

Hill work is key to your success. The ability to change gears, to handle a tough pace, to stay focused all get developed when you do a proper hill workout.

As Stuart Weir has noted, the 60m hurdle wars have been quite close in the 2020 indoor season. This piece, focuses on WIT Lieven, but also provides a backdrop as we build to Tokyo 2020.

Sunday long runs should be part of any program. Enjoy the time with your friends.

Saturday, Feb 22, 2020 Easy 50 minutes, 6 x 150 m strideouts

Yulimar Rojas ended the 2020 World Indoor Tour with a huge TJ of 15.43m, a fabulous new WR! Add to that the fast 6.44 by Ronnie Baker, who is showing exciting fitness and health after some injury troubles.


The Madrid meeting is intimate, and exciting. Sitting on the finish line stretch in 2019, I enjoyed the jumps and pole vault by Ahzelhika Siderova. The 60m hurdles and sprints got the 2,200 fans excited.

2020 was no exception.

This is the seventh and final meeting of the 2020 World Indoor Tour. Some amazing performancers in the final indoor meeting!
