Coach Weber with her athletes Ahmad and Dannuta.
Dannuta Hyacinth and Ahmad Alenezi are two outstanding, well-rounded track athletes who were the lone representatives for their middle school track team. They took on the challenge to learn how to be focused and prepare for jumping, running, and middle distance events through effective, fun training techniques. They gained personal bests in all their events, a top 10 finish in their best events at the 2016 middle school Central Florida Championship, and a boost in self-confidence with a new found thrill in running.

With short notice, a track team was formed where I was the coach. The program was only 5 weeks in length. They only had one week of practice before the first meet. They competed in a total (3) meets ending in a very competitive championship on March 17, 2016. There were an average 20 competitors in each race.

Ahmad and Dannuta became well rounded track athletes excelling in long jump and running events in 5 weeks.
Ahmad and Dannuta became well rounded track athletes excelling in long jump and running events in 5 weeks.
On March 17, the 6th grader, Dannuta, took 10th in the long jump with a new personal best of 11 feet and 10.5 inches. Additionally, Dannuta took 16th with a new PR in 100m (15.47), and 11th in the 200m with a new PR (33.30). The 8th grader, Ahmad, took 10th in the 800m in a new personal best time of 2:58.23. He earned personal bests in all his other events at the second meet with 14.92 in the 100m, 31.33 in the 200m, and 13ft and 4 inches in the long jump.

They both learned how they can have a remarkable rate of improvement through high quality, low quantity workouts. Dannuta trained under my tutelage for only 9 hours over the course of 5 weeks. She improved her long jump by 6.7 percent, she improved her 200m time by 3.5 percent, and she improved her 100m time by 1.22 percent.

Ahmad trained under my tutelage for only 5 hours over the course of 5 weeks. He improved his best event, the 800m, by 2.1 percent.

Greatness is measured in quality. These athletes are looking forward to more great things with their new sport of track and field.

Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.” – Steve Jobs

Coach Johnny Deltoid Interviews Senior Runner (from Rehab to Winning Races)

By:  Track Coach - Johnny Deltoid
By: Track Coach – Johnny Deltoid

Coach Johnny Deltoid is a die hard track fan, track coach, and runner of many years.  His wife of 7 years is also in love with running.  Together they eat, sleep, talk, drink, and run!  Coach Deltoid is fascinated by a senior that couldn’t run from an injury, but through the right rehab and determination he is now running and winning!!  Coach Deltoid interviews this successful senior runner!

1.) Coach Deltoid:  So you ran your first race in 10 years.  What rekindled your flame to race again?
1.) Senior Runner:  I got some new friends that do races and I thought I would jump in my new age group and see what happens.
2.) Coach Deltoid:  A year ago a big decision needed to be made to get a surgery or not get a surgery.  Tell us about that..
2.) Senior Runner:  I had a Grade 2 Rectus Femoris M. partial tear.  I chose NOT to get surgery.  I decided to work under the tutelage of Alica Weber, where I was given a series of exercises to expand my range of motion in my knee joint and undergo light low impact strengthening.  It was the best decision to make and I am back up and running!
3.) Coach Deltoid:  Could you imagine yourself in ’09 (when the injury took place) ever running again?
3.) Senior Runner:  No, it was questionable that I would even be able to run.
4.) Coach Deltoid:  Which exercises that Alicia gave you helped you most?
4.) Senior Runner:  Gliding Disc flexibility training definitely helped, but it was a combination of many exercises and using Skecher Shoes and using Ultra-Sound before exercise. The real test was being able to run, which I passed in Feb 2010 when I ran a 200m on grass in 50 seconds.
5.) Coach Deltoid:  Once you knew you could run again, what was your next challenge?
5.) Senior Runner:  I wanted to run a 400m on the track and I completed it in 1:40.  I just decided to jump into a 5k race for the first time “cold turkey”.  I ran the whole time and finished in 32:30 for 3rd place in my 60-65 age group.  So, I am running with the Big Turkeys now!  So the success spurred me on for the next race where I lowered my time to 29 minutes!  I hope to do one 5k race every month now!
Senior Runner:  From Rehab not being able to run to Running and Winning
5.) Senior Runner: From Rehab not being able to run to Running and Winning

  
6.) Coach Deltoid:  What kinds of recommendations do you give for a person with Grade 2 Rectus Femoris M. partial tear or to one with a  similar knee problem?

6.) Senior Runner:  I would highly recommend getting a pair of Skecher Shoes.  If you are older with muscle imbalances and in need of ankle strengthening, they will help with all of it.  They will help with strengthening the ankles and ligaments in the knees in a way that you can’t get elsewhere.  You are sure-footed with them!  I run and train in my Skechers Men’s Shape Ups Lace-Up,Black,8.5 M
ReliaMed 1Mhz Portable Home Ultrasound Physical Therapist Massage Machine & FREE China Gel Sample is another MUST.  I used ultra-sound 2 x day for 15 mins each time for 6-months.  I always use it before exercise and then again after exercise.  You don’t know if it is working or not, but very suddenly it rebuilds the bone and tissues.

Weber Celebrates Thanksgving in “Turkey Trot and Hop”

Thanksgiving 2010, LAS VEGAS, NV—I eat, sleep, and talk Track and Field!  So my ideal Thanksgiving would be having the opportunity to run with a pack of Turkeys.  Running is always in the picture with me-Track Coach, Johnny Deltoid.  However, I am out in the desert in Las Vegas and there are no turkeys in sight!

I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving by hosting an event called “Turkey Trot and Hop” to satisfy my running desires.  Participants first run 200m all out on a grass course that ends on a hill.  Then, they take a 200m recovery jog.  Immediately after that they hop 200m on the same course.  They do the first 100m hop on their Left Leg and then the 2nd 100m on their Right Leg.  They then can compare times from their one-leg hopping abilities to two-leg sprint abilities.  It is an exciting evaluation in fast-twitch muscle fibers, biomechanics, and muscle stabilizers (since they will be used on the uneven grass surface, unlike on a track).  PLUS it is an “attracktive” way to spend Thanksgiving.

Alicia Weber, an Orlando, FL, personal trainer, world record holder, and champion runner gobbled up this event!

Watch Weber’s winning 200m run and 200m hop in the “Turkey Trot and Hop”

This is a good way to test the strength of your legs.  Happy Trails to you!
