  • Question about Athing Mu's limits...

    As a huge fan of her, I wonder how far this so brilliant athlete will push her chronometric limits... She always reminds me of Marie José Perec, I was training with in the late 80s'... I see a 1'53" and a 48"10 within 5 years...

    A lot is based in which event or events she chooses to train for!
    But if she puts a year or more into serious training for each, I can see the following times--INdoors and/or OUTdoors--


    22.5
    49.0
    1:21.00
    1:52.00
    2:24.00
    3:48.00
    4:06.00

    Sounds crazy, even to me sometimes, but she has the talent for all of the above!
    Given the serious training, being healthy & injury-free!!

    Besides the talent, she's the type of runner who wants to run fast in every race!!

      methinks you've got her too fast on the bottom end and too slow at the top

        By "bottom end" you mean the 1500 and mile, right?

          I hope so....4:06...I wouldn't hold my breath.

            That sounds about right(and maybe sooner for the 1:53)

            Man I wish natural Semenya was still around...

            There are no strings on me

              I could certainly see her running 48.0 / 1:53 by the end of 2024.
              47.60 might too far out there, but we've seen some unbelievable 4000H times this year, so anything is possible.

                no, mean 22.5 is too fast, 4:06 is too slow (particularly the latter)

                  The way I calculated these times was by moving up in distance by increments!
                  But stopping a the mile, as I don't see her becoming a 3K or longer runner!

                  So--if she can run 22.5, she could split, say 24.0 & 25.0 for 49.0.
                  If she can run 49.0, then she could hit 400 in a 600 in 53.0, then run 28.0 to finish it!

                  The 1:21.0 would lead to the 1:52.0 by splitting 1:23.0, the adding a 29.0!

                  Finally, if she can run 1:52.0, it's not uncommon to see a 10 or 11 second slowdown to the mile, meaning a 4:06.
                  3:48 is about what she'd run enroute!

                  But again, all this depends on her training specially for each set of event groupd, and being healthy & injury free for extended periods!
                  The event groups are---
                  200-400
                  600-800-1000
                  1500-Mile

                  If she spent a year or two with each group, she'd be just 25 when she finished!
                  From then on, she'd just be breaking her own records! (PR's).

                    You think she is going to run 4:06 for a mile? I don't see that at all.

                      That's the way I read it but I wanted to make sure understood you correctly that you see her as a future world record breaker in the 1500 and mile?

                        I think we all agree that the "4000H" is one of the most grueling events in T&F. 😏

                          I would say around 22.5 is too fast as well, but I would bet on that before I even consider a 4:06

                            Yeah, that's a pretty bold statement.

                              When she gets down to 1:50 then let's talk about 4:06.

                              I find these what they can do discussions rather pointless...but this is so wild...
