Robby isn't used to going out in front like that. His legs felt dead after 800m and it just wasn't his race. compare him to the rest of the pro 1500 runners but Plain and simple Robby has 1:44 foot speed that not many others 1500 runners have and ultimately determines his potential. He just needs more experience. Remember, the kid is only 21 and getting used to professional racing. He's not some Oregon science project getting his butt wiped in Eugene. The kid knows how to race and is one of the most entertaining racers out there. In this sport, opportunities arise every week. He never had a slump in college (besides his injuries). He'll be back to putting on a show for us
First of all some of the comments on here are absurd.
He was never at the front, he was third behind moderate pace setting at 60+ and 1:59, and xero traffic issues
The most unsettling thing would be that after an easy 1:51 rust bustter, that they are so far off on gauging his fitness, In interview Andrews has said he has never been more fit.
Centro for example said he has not been this fit this early, but he gets a pass on euro travel, first real 1500/mile and it wasn't anything(3:40.xx 15) like Andrews' 4:11 with last 880 in 2:12.
One thing you cannot continue to do is chalk these up to "he is an 800 guy" as he really is not anymore, they have made that comittment upwards a while ago. This was also a backyard race with easy travel, Hard to figure, you can be that far off from a sub 4 thought to this?
Let's see what the 1000 looks like before hitting any panic buttons.
" Robby isn't used to going out in front like that. "
Thanks. So he led or the pace was hard? Do you know any splits?
Sorry about the “ie” as I just went from the result. And I am just looking for an answer, not ragging on his performance.
Barring the fact that he may be sick/some other ailment, it seems that Andrews just isn't doing enough mileage to be a competitive 1500m runner in these days of high mileage revival. High mileage means consistency. He's doing great work for an 800m runner, I'm sure, but last I heard, he did 35-50 in college. Miles make champions, and he doesn't have enough under him at this point.
andrews could not handle the step up in volume of hard work.
andrews needs to take some time off and then go back to 800 m training formula from the past.
once he has re-established himself, then he can add on the volume - gradually - and go for 1500.
rupp ran 3:57 (rust buster), then 3:50. centro ran 3:40 (roughly 3:57.6 rust buster) and will run...? we'll see. He said he's in phenomenal shape, might try for lagat's record and his coach is salazar. i would say he has a shot based on salazar's athlete's performances the last 18 months.. as far as andrews goes, 4:11 is lousy. he's probably mentally shattered right now but may have been running on heavy legs. it's only january
