I'm attempting an 800m race tomorrow even though I come from a mainly 200/400 sprint background, this is my first year's proper winter training and my fitness is going well so my coach suggested I give an 800 metres a go for my season opener. I did a session on tuesday this week which consisted of 8 x 200m (90 seconds rest) and did them all in 27/28. My PBs from last year were 23.8 in 200m and 53.83 in 400m with little training behind me. What sort of 800m time am i looking at? and how should i pace the race coming from a shorter distance background, would it be better to go out with a fast first lap and then grit my teeth and hold on haha? I've also ran a 1:30 indoors last year for 600m if that helps in predicting a time, feel a lot fitter now though!
