Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500 is grossly unrealistic.
Take a shot at your 5000m pr before the season's gone. I'm not sure that running 1500m every week is the key. You are very close and if your coach gives you a chance to recover, dropping a few days of intervals in your peak month, you'll be right there.
NY Relays was on Friday, so I couldn't make it down for it (initially thought the 10th was Saturday), but I ran a hilly 10k in Central Park in 33:51, a 28 second pr 5:30,5:30,5:23?,5:37,5:16,5:30,1:04-.2. That was also 1:57 better than I had ever run that course (last time was 2007). I was in better shape a few weeks ago, then had hamstring tightness and couldn't do much tempo or track work, so I'm pleased with this race and think sub-33 on the same course is a possibility at the end of next month. I finally figured how to solve the hamstring problem so I can begin again with some track work and tempos this week. If those go well, I might run a 5000m next week, going for sub-16, but should be ready for better track races in May.
