RE: Who here can run under 5 minutes for a mile?
First broke 5 as a senior in high school (late bloomer). Ran 5-8 miles 3 times a week and did some sprints or stair workouts the other two days of the week. Some lifting here and there and some cross training over the winter because I was hurt.
Probably 25-30mpw.

5.5 years later and I could hop on the track any time of the day, any day of the week and break 5. I got a lot better in college, though.

Never ran the 800m when I broke 5 but I ran a 55.7 400m in my lone attempt at that distance and I ran ~10:50 for 3200m a few different times.

Hope this helps
