everyone ran 4:30 in high school wrote:
I ran a 4:11 mile today downhill (-8 feet elevation) on the roads. This wasn't an all out effort but I was feeling good so I wanted to see how fast I could go if I just went for it. I am at the beginning of cross season so I haven't touched speed at all yet, but this raised my confidence for the upcoming track season. I know predictor threads suck but if I continue to progress can I assume I can run sub 4:05 1500 this season?
Strava or it didn't happen wrote:
Was this on a strava segment? If so, do you own it now?
You‘re asking if running eight feet downhill is shaved 19 seconds off your time? That‘s crazy. Assuming your ran 5th Ave. At most it‘s a couple seconds fast.
most likely not accurate anyway wrote:
GPS in the city is notoriously bad. On top of difficult to estimate since you stopped at lights, people routinely have 1, 2, 3min mile "best efforts" on strava in NYC. Best not to pay attention to it at all.
Just go do an 1600m time trial on a track wrote:
See if you're anywhere close to 4:11
