Subject: RE: German Fernandez Wins Big 12 Mile
The 3:55.02 was on a banked 200m indoor track. I'm on your side though- it's definitely equivalent to a 3:53.4 on an outdoor track, in a 3:50 race.
German needs to get his swagger back... cause when he does, he's a baaad mo-fo.
Remember him at USAs in the 5K? He was right there with 800m to go. 5th place as an 18 year old, running a 13:25 PR. Man that was great.
Is 3:55.02 indoors on a flat track all winning by 10+ seconds as impressive as a 3:53.43 getting pulled along by possibly the best field ever assembled in the United States?
It sounds pretty close to me.
I understand that 3:53 is a lot better than 3:55 but given all the factors German's mile was at least in the same ball park.
That month was German's best in his running career. 3:56.5, 3:55.0, 7:47, and 23:20 8k crushing the best US Jr. XC field. Even his 13:25 and NCAA 1500 championship isn't nearly as good in comparison[/quote]
