Really depends on the person. I've been around 1:46 guys who never walked in a weight room, and then been around 1:49 guys who spent a lot of time there.
Plyos, what do you consider plyos?
It depends really if you are more of a 400m runner or 1500m runner
I'm more of a 1500m runner than a 400m runner, I suppose.
My plyo workouts have typically included the following (sorry, I don't exactly know the widely used names for most of them):
1) Jump squats
2) Jumping lunges. Basically going down into a lunge position, jumping straight up, switching legs to land in a lunge position with the opposite leg forward, and repeating the process several times.
3) Long jumps where we basically do a bunch of standing LJs in a row
4) Single leg hops
5) "Speed skaters." Basically jumping side to side landing with the outside foot forward.
