learn to think

as i stated above, i have seen most every < 1'43 live, apart from coupla each Kip's/Johnny's/Cruz's/Rudy's 1'42s

i have seen every 1'40/1'41 live on satellite...

( apart from mickey-mouse firenze )

that's 10 of 11 live on satellite/cable/etc

how many guys on the planet do you think can claim the same ???

Ryun ?

quite simply a quantum leap above any 800'er who ever lived off just 1500 training !!!

i can assure you, from a guy who has seen 10 of 11 live-on-satellite/cable < 1'42,

that is

~ 1'39.9

on a '70s synthetic off just 1500 training



But that notwithstanding, if Letsrun people are far too conservative, perhaps you are batshit crazy?

you clearly are clueless

have you never heard about :

- ideal pacing

- non-existent quality pacers in '60s

( they got good in '70s

'70s pacers are probably even better than rubbish nowdays apart from magut pacing asbel only to 1400 in monaco-'14 !!!

magut ran 3'30.6 year after, but coudn't even get Asbel to 1100 in '13 monaco !!! )

- ideal drafting if elite cares to follow given weather/race $$$

- hyenas behind, like souly succumbed to in oslo

( even Asbel has to be considered a hyena as the oslo weather was suicidal to chase 3'44 for an african

the african pacers collapsed by 800, offering rubbish 1'53+ )

( i like him lot more now he went for 3'44 in disastrous unafrican weather )

- dirt

Ryun is a quantum leap better than any 800 guy than anyone who drew breathe

wouda been nice if he actually trained for it...
