These shoes the best
RE: Sub 1:50 800m Training

I pretty much agree with what you said. I was the top 800 guy at a western school at 1:44. I had three teammates that ran the 400 under 44, so I had good workout partners. We did a 3 mile tempo workout at 4:25, 4:15, and 3:59 in our taper that year.

I was also benching 350 for 10 reps and squatting 175 for 20 reps during the tapering phase. I had 32 inch thighs!

My flying 100 meter was 9.7, I had considered being a sprinter after that one!

Anyways I ran between 80-100 miles per week in my buildup. We did 6 X the mile with 200 jogs between. I think all of my miles were under 4:10. That was pretty average for me. We also did flying 200s inside 20 seconds when we ran them. Those were uphill. When we had downhill we could often break 18!

Our jump rope workout were tougher than anything. We used to do them double Dutch style.
