Think about that workout this way, with the paces adjusted for a 4:00 miler.
1200m in 2:59-3:00
4x400m in 58 58 59 58 (50s rest)
4x200m in 25 25 25 25 (50s rest)
Its a hard workout but doable. 7 mins is basically full recovery, especially for someone who is aerobically fit and that has lived at altitude his whole life. Also keep in mind altitude actually 'helps' sprints, so the 200s are probably easier when going that fast.
How in the world do you know that it is a hard workout but doable for a 3:26 1500m guy at 7,300 ft altitude ?
Have you ever in your life done this workout at 7,300 ft. altitude? If you had actually done this workout at 7,300 ft altitudeâ€¦you would not be saying that altitude makes the 200s easier in that workout. Absolute complete nonsense.
Altitude helps sprints when you are doing 1 sprint at altitude, not 4 x 200m in 23sec with 50sec rest, after 4 x 400m in 54sec with 50 sec rest, which was 7 minutes after a 1200m in 2:47... at 7,300 ft. altitude.
Asbel Kiprop is probably the only person on the planet today that could do that workout.
