Kind of embarrassing to get schooled by a decathlete lol.
If that is true just imagine what he could if he increases his mileage and started training like an 800 guy. He obviously has at least 1:45 ability based on this. That much we can be sure of, but we can only speculate on what is true potential would be. I am willing to guess that it is at least in the 1:43 range. The guy is a mid-distance runner and just doesn't know it.
From my understanding he solely does decathlon training and rarely if ever runs more than 15 miles per week
