3X400m- 800m Time Prediction?

Hi Trackie,

I was just wondering if anyone one could make an educated guess on what my 800m time would be using the following workout as an indicator. Workout was 3X400m, 8 mins rest in between. 1) 51.4 (not quite max effort), 2) 56.30 (Max effort), 3) 65.

I know it's hard to guess from one workout but just wondering what type of time this would translate to.

    Wow that’s a brick if I’ve ever seen one, I’d say 1:59-2:02

    My prediction: You need to go out, right now, and do some endurance running.

    I agree with the 1:59-2:02

    Your second and third 400 must of hurt pretty bad to go from 51 to 56 to 65.

    Would have been interesting to see what the second and third looked like had you gone out in 53-54

    Get some aerobic base in you and you’d probably have like 1:54-1:56 range

    If you did them with 2 minutes rest I would say 1.52. With 8 minutes probably 1.56 - 1.57,..

    Relax 1:52 is a bit of a jump, 1:55 low 1:54 high at best

    51 + 56 with 2 minutes rest would be a good workout..

    A couple of workouts that might give you a good indication that I did back in the day for estimating 800 m time are: 4 x 200 m at 30 secs with jog 200 recovery (just easing into it) then 10 mins rest 1 x 600 m then 15 secs rest and 1 x 200 m with whatever you have left. The other is 4 x 400 m with 3 mins rest. Take average of all 4, I was always within +/- 1 sec using these. Everyone is different though.

    Cool, thanks for the info Caymantan, I'll likely give all those a try at some point this season.

    and Y'all are being too doom and gloom. I found my workouts from last year, in which I did that said workout in early December and ran 50.9, 55.5, and 58.6, and within 2 months of that ran 1:53 high. Besides the 65 (which I'm hoping was just a major mental lapse), the workout times are very similar, so I'm not pressing the panic button yet. Thanks for all the thoughts though!

    Yeah, I gotta ask, MaxSpeed - what trend do you see in the two sessions that you posted?

    You are obviously a very speedy guy, but what do you get from a workout where you have clearly died early in the session? That's Straining, not Training. Try the first 400m at 800m pace. Try to be slightly faster on the subsequent 400m runs. Your bodybrain will love you for it.

    Why don't you just try the Kosmin test instead? Relatively similar to the workout you did but you can actually get a predicted 800m time through a calculator online.

    I have an idea. Why not just run 800m and then you will know your time.
    I realize this is a novel and unusual idea but sometimes you need to think outside of the box.

    I once ran 1:58.8 for 800m.

    What could I have done for 3x400m with long rests?

    If I had to wager a guess, I would say 49.9, 61.3, 72.01. But apparently, you're gonna want to taper away your long runs for 3 to 4 months to really feel that burn.

    Nice.

    I read the same thing about 4x400 with 4:00 rest, which always seemed VERY long to me.
