Check again wrote:200 at 19.2 and 400 at 45.3 would yield what for a 600? Or would this be skewed because we don't have a long enough run to be accurate?

that calculator doesn't input 200m as it is not a distance "evenly" run

you coud try with his 300pb ( possibly coud be run evenly ) of 30.9 & say a 400 of maybe 44.5 - 45.0

30.9 / 44.5 - 45.0 -> 1'13.8 - 1'15.6

however, his endurance woudn't last "perfectly" to 600 ( it doesn't even to 400 )

i'd say about 1'15 woud be his hypothetical limit, but in actuality, a handful of seconds slower
