Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I love this annoying thread.
First mile of the year yesterday - not a PR (ending my hopes of PRing every time I race this season) but very close.
Split 64 65 67 65 for a 4:22.64. The wheels never really came off - I just never gunned it hard enough. First race of the season so I'm not going to get too down on myself but I know I could have done better (obviously, looking at the third quarter).
Good double, Ron. Going out that hard is audacious and commendable - sometimes you can hang on, which is valuable to learn.
Jonesy - I definitely agree about the race-specific work. Do you just not have access to any facilities right now or just haven't felt like doing it? I realize I'm coming from much more speed-oriented training, but being able to run 9:50 or so for 3k usually means I can run right around 4:40 for the mile.
I think you're going to have a hard time PRing in these shorter distances by much if you don't focus on them. I think it'd be smart to choose whether you want to make this year a short distance year or a 10k-marathon year - otherwise, I worry that you'll hammer out your 90 mile weeks only to find very small PRs in every event because you haven't been specific enough.
nonetheless, good job on the win!
good job to you too, eddy. have you had any luck with getting some more intelligent workouts from your coach?
ps. the 800 was on a banked track - harvard's. i'm working / running around the boston area now - may be a while before i see the inside of the armory again.
