RE: Sub 1:50 800m Training

If 1.33 works for someone, then they either

a) did not run all out in the 600m TT
-They ran all out but ALONE (see below for the distinction)

b) ran slower then they could have in the TT for some reason (ex weather)
-NO

c) gained fitness between the trial and the race, or sharpened up.
-To some extent. While the EFFORT is race-like, it is conducted under normal training context, i.e. no special sharpening/tapers as for races.

d) race above their capacities shown in training for some reason
-You mean like...because it's a COMPETITION? Because maybe the prescence of rivals, accurate time recording and crowd support might ACTUALLY cause someone to dig deeper than running alone on a training track? My god this is a SHOCKING revelation!
