I am a journalist working on a science story about optimum pacing strategies. Can you tell me the source for these numbers? I'd love to use them in my article, along with any more recent ones you have (also women or different distances).
There's a guy who frequents this board whom you need to interview. He goes by the ID calculo, formerly, Ventolin^3. He has an amazing eye for detail and splits in MD WR runs dating back to the epic time of Jim Ryun. Did you know, Ryun was capable of 3:24 for 1500, 1:39 for 880 and 44 point low for 440? After you discuss this with calculo, you will see the light. Even Bekele would have had no hope against the true power of Ryun.
I support the plight of Jim Ryun!
