Not to be an ass, but just go to the track and run a 1,500m all out. No workout will give you a truelly accurate "predictor" like an all out effort of the distance. Obviously with competition you will run faster, so say your workout netted a 4:20, chances are you are in 4:10 or so shape.
How is that being an ass? I appreciate the input and will consider it.
From my experience as an unattached runner, I agree with 'gf-whooty'. Don't waste your money on a meet just to run a 'rust-buster.' Go to the track and put in a race effort, at any distance you like between 800m and 3,000m. From my experience (and look at pros, too - it's the same for them), it's just very unlikely to do a fast race on your first go, and especially if you haven't raced for awhile.
