So I ran a 4:57 today, opened in 72, closed in 64, my middle laps suck. How can I spread it out more evenly, some reason I just can’t run a good second lap.
Not sure how old you are but from my experience the first time I ever broke 5 was pretty ridiculous split wise. I was all over the place.
4:54 Age was 12
409m: 1:03 (Point)
809m: 2:21 (1:18)
1209m: 3:43 (1:22)
1609m: 4:54 (1:11)
As I matured things just naturally smoothed out I learned how to pace.
4:04 Life Time best Age 22 (Per 400m pace was 1:00.70 or so)
409m: 1:01 (Point)
809m: 2:03 (1:01)
1209m: 3:04 (1:01)
1609m: 4:04 (59 High)
I was also able to run 29:05 for 10,000m and would pace perfect 1:09.8 per 400m the entire way.
