From the looks of what she ran, I would think it's a combo of both. I would bet she got out a little too hard and if she hasn't been training like a 400m runner she may need the Speed Endurance.
What is her 200m pr? You can take her 200m pr add it together and tack on 3-3.5 and that will tell you what she could run.
She should get out over the first 200m 1.0-2.0 of her 200m pr. So if it's 28.0 she should come through the first 200m at 29.5
Her 200m PR is 27.7h and 28.14 FAT.
I wasn't sure whether it was needing more SE or what. However, I did tell her that I thought she could have been better off by coming in the first 200m a little slower. I also told her 29.5.
She did not originally train like a 400m runner. I trained her like a short sprinter since this is her first year ever being involved in a sport. Next year (starting this summer) I'll train her like a 200/400 runner.
So you are saying you feel she can go 2-2.5 seconds faster (29.5 + 29.5 = 59.0 + 3.5 = 1:02.50) in the 400m if she just simply slows her first 200m down a half of a second (28.97 to 29.5)? And IF this is what you're saying, she has to run the 4 x 400 on Saturday (tomorrow). Could she make that improvement by tomorrow?
