I called this as well, to miss narrowly in the 1500m but get the mile record by 1-2 s.
What does this suggest he can do in the 5?
1) 200m indoor tracks are not easy for tall & long limbed 200m or 400m athletes but are ideal for 1500m runners.
2) No wind indoors.
3) 70 degrees F indoors
4) I have no idea how detailed indoor facilities care to be but they can control oxygen level and humidity level.
If a 1500m athlete chooses to peak for indoors, 1500m athletes may set overall personal bests indoors.
You clearly haven't raced indoors
Judging by the ads on LRC (I'm guessing the target reader of letsrun, age 39), my first indoor race may have been before you were born. Say something else stupid.
