I used to run faster
RE: Who here can run under 5 minutes for a mile?
1) Late April, 1980
2) Cannot at this moment. I still have sub-5 one mile potential.
3) App. 35 miles a week November through February with one hill workout a week. While in T&F season, app. 7 1/2 miles a week of road mileage. I do not add distance from interval workouts and count as mileage. Low mileage because I also had 220/440/200/400 obligations to T&F team.
4) We had a significant amount of 880yds./800m talent on T&F team. I did not race 800m/880yds. season I 1st raced sub-5 one mile. I felt like I could have raced sub-2:10 880yds./800m when I 1st. raced sub-5 one mile.
[Note: I stated yards/metres because 1979 & 1980 we raced on 440yd. cinder/dirt tracks and 400m synthetic tracks.]
