how much did you weigh when you cleared 2.05? Almost exactly the same as I weigh now. Although I am currently a bit heavier than I was a few months ago given I haven't run a ton over the last few weeks.
"what was your PB in the 200, and was your weight about the same as when you went 2.05?"
PB in the sprints were all at about the same weight (~185 or so). I don't remember my 200 PB but I did sneak under 11 FAT in high school in the 100 and would typically split in the 49s for 4x400 legs. My guess is my 200 pb would have been in the mid 22s. I did also run the 800 a few times in 9th/10th grade and ran 1:58 or so if my memory serves me correctly.
"in terms of longer distance capacity, i'll assume you're 6-12 weeks away from being back in striking distance of 15:20s."
Not sure exactly. About 4 weeks ago I ran a Portuguese surge. 3 miles @ M pace (6:00) then 2 miles surge where I hit 5:20 and 4:50 or so and I didn't feel too gassed. My guess is I was in about 15:45 shape at that point but was also doing marathon training.
If you want to get a sense of my recent training here is my Strava.
If you want to take a look at some of my training leading up to my 2nd best 5k time (15:45 on the track). Unfortunately my training leading up to my 5k PR is in final surge.
One other thing to note. Pretty much all of my shorter distance PRs are off solo time trials (COVID + I have 3 really young kids). They are track times or on very carefully measured courses though. Needless to say I don't have a ton of experience with actual competition since college.
