Poster: Former Bomber
Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
As a freshman in college my coach bumped me up to 1500 from the 800. It took some getting used to, but I managed to run 4:10. As a sophomore my goal was to break 4. I trained really hard and only managed to run 4:04. Junior year I had mono, but I'm convinced that had I been healthy I would have beat the 4:00 minute mark.
Anyway, I digress. As a senior I was left with one track season to achieve my goal. The workouts that I feel helped me the most were as follows:
[600 in 1:32, 30 sec rest, 200 in 30, full recovery] x 3
2x4x400 in 64 with 60 sec rest in between intervals, full recovery between sets
1000 in under 2:40, 2:40 rest, 3x600 in 1:34-1:36, 1:30 rest, 3x300 in under 45, 100 jog rest
I also incorporated some weightlifting and plyometrics. This regimen not only took me down to 3:59, but my 800 time improved significantly as well.
