|Subject: ||RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.|
I'm going to have to disagree with you. I don't think I did any tempos last year during track - I ran multiple sub-16s off something like 50 miles per week average (best 15:42). I doubt I would have been able to run faster than 5:50 pace for 30 minutes without feeling like trash.
I don't know why - but tempo runs are just genuinely difficult for me. I know I'm in better than 16 shape - 16:18 following two hard mile races (one the previous day, one an hour before) tells me that. It didn't feel difficult besides the fact that my legs had a few heavy stones attached to them.
Anyhoo, we'll find out. I'm not due for another 5k till the end of March - if I can get my tempo pace down to 27:30 for 5 mi by then, I'd be shocked if I didn't run under 15.
