1500 – 4:15.30
800 – 2:08.75
Winner – Coach Carl Blickle with guesses of 4:16.05 and 2:08.87 for a net difference of 0.99 seconds!
Read a great post-race interview here… Thanks a TON to Dave for finding it.
I wanted to be aggressive, ideally hitting ~2:15 or so at the 800.
- 400 in ~68.7 and I was in 7th. The pace was slowing so I went.
- 800 in ~2:18.0 (~69.3) and stepped on the gas cause I felt good.
- 1200 in 3:26.0 (~68.0) still feeling good.
- Last 300 in 49.3 (65.7 pace) for a final time of 4:15.3.
Somehow that’s a 1500 PR, as my fastest in college was a 4:15.57.
I can definitely run faster. I was running around people the whole first 400, was alone from 450 on, and had more in the tank when I finished.
I want to run a mile TT where a rabbit (Drew?!) goes 67 / 2:15 / 3:23. I think ~4:30 is in the cards with how I felt yesterday.
Does anyone actually like the 800? I got out in literally last place.
My 200 split was 32.4 while my next 200 was 31.4. That’s not how you run the 800.
I was rigging up pretty good for a 2:08.75. This was no doubt a harder effort than the 4:15.
The 800 sucks.
Thanks for guessing!
