1200, not 1600
imagine if it was “average d1 runner runs tt in 3:40 mile pace…off a 200”
If not for the drunk pacing, Tuohy would run faster than 4:24. The pacer sprinted off but then came back and slowed them down. Awful.
Agree, the pacesetting was abysmal in that race. They ended up running too fast through 400 (and then the athletes overcorrected from 400-800). I get that not everyone is Sowinsky, but are there consequences when they pacers fail so badly? Do they not get paid? Or do the meet organizers just decide not to hire them again?
I dont think theres many pro runners training at altitude that could run 4:22 or 4:24 mile right now. Tuohy is extremely talented for running these times. She gone!
Tuohy is poised to break the 15-minute barrier this year. Additionally, she will go sub 4:20 next year in the mile.
Tuohy went from 4:16-4:12-4:09-4:06- 4:04 in 2 years, with 4:04 as a conversion of the 4:24 mile. In the 5000m she went from 15:47-15:30-15:14. Those times came from solo efforts and less competitive races.
Tuohy's 4:04/4:24 mile indicates a really fast 3000m and 5000m. Elly Henes ran a 14:52 the same year she ran 4:05/4:27. Tuohy looks poised to break 15.
She will, I believe she will.
She paced another race that day.
Then get sowinski.
Amen...I had looked at her career times and no offense to her but you might think they could have found someone a little more fit to pacing a mile at 33 second per lap thru 600.
She will be sub 4:18 by the end of the season. You can quote me.
Pacemakers are for entertainment.
Racing is real
How many more miles do you think she will race? It may be zero.
Katelyn is definitely running great! But it's NOT really that extraordinary when you realize that HIGH SCHOOLER Alexa Efraimson ran the 1500 in 4:03.39 (mile equivalent of 4:22.8 according to MileSplit) in 2015 (and without super shoes!).
Yes, at the UW track. And then ran what? It is extraordinary both for setting the record itself and because it is exceedingly rare for runners to maintain such a high level from high school through college. If it was so easy then why had no one done it since 2009?
Quoted. I'll take that bet.
Henes knows enough about Tuohy's abilities to assess whether a 4:22 pace 1200m time trial would translate into a 4:24 mile. Tuohy must have felt pretty good after running that.
Not surprisingly Tuohy made the Bowerman watch list. She would probably have to break the 3000m record and swept the 5000m and 3000m at the NCAAs to win it, but nice recognition anyway.
