RE: Aidan Tooker 4:09.38 US#1 Mile!
It happens and that's why you have these early December meets, but all you need to know about this is to look at the track lists in December vs. January or February. The leaders run far, far superior times in January and February.

awfully quick this early. hard to shift gears that fast right after xc.


This is such a funny comment I see around here often. They are high school kids, most of them running 4:20 or faster have that gear 365 days a year.

Does anyone else have college stories about running a track 1600/mile at the end of XC season and decent guys PR'd? I think our graduate assistant was a D3 national champ at 5k and his mile PR was from the post XC season mile run. (May have invented the PR part in my head, but he definitely ran a ridiculous time for a November mile with his teammates.) I understand this potentially raises lots of other questions, but I personally don't see how it's that difficult for a young athlete to run a good mile time off of XC fitness.[/quote]
