Wow is right. I could see myself coming back from a layoff and running an 800 roughly 10 seconds slower than my fastest just to get the legs moving. Remember, this was indoors in freaking January. If this were the Drake Relays, I could understand all the "stick a fork in him" from the wannabees.

He better be able to come through the 800 faster than that or he is not going to london
1:55 is what Webb is planning to go through 1500m come June/July... good start for him. Better than being injured and not racing/training.
Why would that matter?

I want to see video of this race. See if he was just doing it as some sort of a tune up thing and not trying too hard or if he was really gutting it out.
Even more impressive was that the 65 was done while eating a JBC and the 50 was done while eating a Baconator!
The splits were 65/50? If so, then that is not bad at all.
