6 Pace Recognition / (1500 Races) / Pace Changes MR: Your biggest races are mostly of two sorts- the time trial type of meets where you’re trying to run as fast as possible and the major championships, where place is most important. In the championship races, you have to be able to surge and counter moves and things like that. Do you practice those tactics in training, like purposefully getting boxed in during a track workout? CM: That is very difficult to simulate in training. The key is to be super fit and ready to deal with whatever happens in the race. But in Helsinki, we ran the last lap in 53. That’s not super quick. The fitness and strength have to be there so that you can get through the first 11-and-a-half laps. I don’t care how quick you are if by the last lap you’ve lost your ability to sprint. So the basic thing is to be fit and strong. The 1500 and 3k races give you that little extra quickness.

7 “You need to be close, but still within yourself. Otherwise, they’ll suck you in and you’ll never recover. The best steeplers in the world can recover and still close in under 60 seconds for the last 400. Mark needed to be totally efficient just so his 62 wouldn’t completely kill any chances of getting a medal.” In the last 10 Major Championships, a 7 second differential per thousand meter splits have existed and 50% of the time, it’s NOT the final thousand metersIn the last 10 Major Championships, a 7 second differential per thousand meter splits have existed and 50% of the time, it’s NOT the final thousand meters Croghan – 8:09.76 (2:42.6) (2:43.7) (2:43.4) Diemer – 8: (2:44.8) (2:46.1) (2:43.1) Lincoln – 8:08.82 – (2:41.6) (2:43.1) (2:44.1) * Real Racing … not just hanging on for dear life.
