OldSub4, I think I recall saying you ran 1:46, but what were your prs at 1500 and the mile? Did you run any 5k's? You had to have been in close to 13:50-14:00 shape to do that 4:20...8:50 workout. I am trying to target the 1500 as well as the 800 and was wondering if it is possible to run almost as good of a 1500 as an 800 off of your training ideas/theories.
Also, I just did 10X(1/3 fast, 1/3 moderate) with the first 5 fast ones at tempo, next 4 at mile pace and last 1 a bit quicker. The recovery pace was about 6:00-6:15 pace, and also rested about a minute between the mile pace ones just standing there. Might have gotten a bit carried away, but I was feeling pretty good. It was tough but I could have done at least 2 more at mile pace. Is this type of thing ok to do every once and a while during the base phase?
