good to hear, and goodluck in that Pentathlon next weekend. What are you aiming for in the 1000? And also how do you usually run yours as far as whether you do even splits or go out a little bit harder or what?
I’ve run under 2:40 in the past (PB – I think – was 2:37 or 2:38). When I ran fast, I went out hard – Something like: 30, 30, 31, 32, 34
However, I’m not in that kind of shape. Due to that, I will probably actually attempt negative splits – and just try to pick it up every lap based on how I feel.. Ideally, I’d like to run a 2:48-2:50 – something like 35, 35, 34, 34, 33. However a lot will depend on the guys in the meet. I know there is at least 1 guy (he’s scored 39xx in the pent) who’s a 48.x 400 guy and can crank out a 2:45 or so. I may just run on his shoulder and see how it goes.
