RE: Sub 1:50 800m Training
Just spent the last 2 months reading the entire blog - really very impressive. Tremendous to have such rich information, glad it didnt get bogged down in physiology. At the end of the day, its all about searching for the limit of your own body - and 800m is a great event to test that. I have a crop of 14 to 17 year old guys I guide at present who are all ripping into 800's and I have learnt a lot - and I thought after 30 years of experience its great to still be learning. Started my training way back in the 80's with a 1min 47.7 mate who fought for a spot at Munich with a young John Walker, both of them not quite making it - all Lydiard stuff, happy to see the progression from that training as Im sure Lydiard also would have embraced. I appreciate the sage comments from OldSub4 and the detail from JRinaldi, especially the focus on injury awareness. Cheers folks.
