Subject: RE: FOR TRUE MILERS, 1500 PR < (800 PR * 2)+5 ---- WHAT ABOUT YOU?
You're right. We know Coe was one of the best milers we've ever seen. He was just ridiculously good at the 800, too, but pointing him out like this really is showing him to be the exception rather than the rule.
I guess my rule of thumb actually identifies runners whose mile is significantly better than their 800. Which, as some mentioned above, would catch 5000+ specialists, who of course are going to have 1500s that are a lot better than their 800s.
I would bet that the more speed-based 800/1500 guys have 1500s that don't make it inside this window. (If Centro had an 800 PR on the books, we could look into that...Maybe Wheating?)
