M1500m 55.5, 1:52, 2:20 (3:30 pace)
M3000SC 2:37, 5:18
W5000 2:50, 5:40, 8:30, 11:20 (14:10 pace even)
some interesting wabbit splits
Alf was in sensational shape in paris, in a perfect race, it wouda been ~ 1'41-low !!!
if he goes for fast time & follows 49.8, which is ~ 1'41.6 pace, he needs to ensure initial 200 is not nonsense 23-low/mid but more like 24-mid & & then no slower than 50.0 at bell & he can get into 1'41s
the 1500 pace is unambitious, shoud be aiming for 3'28+ with 1'51.0 at 800
Asbel went back to kenya after lausanne to train & i hope he isn't going to waste it with a 3'30/3'31 effort
the men's SC splits look nonsense :
2'37 is 7'51-pace !!!
5'18 is 7'57 pace ??!!
how is he supposed to run 7'52 off that 2nd km ???
'Ruto is in shape to run 7'50+, so splits shoud be 2'37 then slight slowing to 5'15 , which is 7'52.5 pace, leaving a big last 1k to get him possible 7'50+
hope weather is good...
