LOL Hardloper goes home devastated.
Look at the 800 pr's of the Ingebrigtsens. None are close to what you might expect for 3:30-32. The reason is that they do not train at sub mile pace, unless you count short sprints and hill repeats. They could do it, I am sure, but it would involve changing up their training quite a bit. Jakob can run sub 13.
