Junior year of high school, our team had three decent distance runners that year, then no depth, so as an 800 runner, I had to quadruple each year, usually running one or two all out and 2 or 3 at some lower effort. Best quad was something like:
4:32 (maybe 4:24 shape, running just hard enough to beat best opponent), 1st/2nd, crossed line with teammate
2:00: pretty close to all out, but again just to beat best opponent, pr at the time was 1:58 1st/2nd, crossed line with teammate
11:00: was told to only let one opponent beat me and run as easy as possible to beat 2nd best opponent, my teammate ran for first while I got third, taking it as easy as I could while making sure to beat the other teams 2nd guy
51 in 4x4, team won the 4x4
We won the meet by 1 point, hence the focus on the 4x4 and need to still get 3rd in the 3200. This was back in the day when everything was FAT, but manually entered, no athletic.net yet, so our coaches wer able to track the meet and score it as it went so we knew exactly where we stood. It wouldn't work these days with everybody doing 3 to 4 teams at "dual meets."
