If you never competitively ran the 800 like I did, then you don’t understand my love/hate relationship with that distance

runningtothefinish:

  • yes it’s short compared to the mile or 2 mile
  • BUT you’re caught in the middle between sprinting a pacing
  • Because a 400 you’re going as fast as you can pretty much
  • and a mile you can pace each lap to your desire
  • with an 800 you run the first lap really fast and then have to push through ANOTHER fast lap
  • this is why the 800 is hell
