trying to predict a 5k for her is not easy as her endurance probably doesn't "last" perfectly to 5k of 1500/800 training
Wetmore said they’ve done “very little 5000 training, maybe by my recollection two workouts this whole season.”
Just Because It’s Not An American Record Attempt That Doesn’t Mean The American Record Wont’ Fall
When asked how fast Simpson could run, Wetmore responded, “She’s very fit and I think she’s in the position to run some very fast times but we’re not pursuing records this season.”
I'm no expert on this stuff, that's for sure, but this doesn't make sense to me. Can you explain how a 2.0s difference @1500m translates into 19.4s difference @5000m...seems like it should be more like 7s, maybe 8s. The IAAF scoring tables would say the same. What am I missing?
4'00.0 -> 8'33.1 , 14'55.8
3'59.0 -> 8'28.9 , 14'46.1
3'58.0 -> 8'24.7 , 14'36.4
