  • Someone please break 4:00 this weekend!

    This January was the first since 1998 in which no American broke the 4-minute mile. The first sub-4 that year was on February 7. Matt Lane is very fit and has a chance tonight at Millrose, but the new Garden track is slow. I'd guess that someone will do it on Saturday, perhaps at the Meyo meet at Notre Dame.

    I agree, I think a sub 4 will happen this weekend

      Lets be fair there has only been a few races.
      Tyson will give as several US sub 4 minute miles. Lunn says he is in 3:55 condition.

      Lets be real a four minute mile is not any kind of elite time today. We should be asking when will the next American run 3:55. We are setting the sights to low again.

        There will be no US 4-minute mile tonight. What a awful race. Honerkamp might as well have run in the H.S. mile. This could have been a race from 1960!

        Finals
        1 Hudson de Souza Brazil 4:02.93
        2 James Thie N Y A C (G B R) 4:04.28
        3 Matt Lane Nike FT 4:05.00
        4 Eliud Njubi Kenya 4:06.50
        5 James Karanu Kenya 4:07.77
        6 Ted Towle N Y A C 4:08.82
        7 John Honerkamp N Y A C 4:15.00
        -- George Milic Serbia DNF

            Actually, we barely got it at Meyo, since three of the four runners under 4:00 are not American.

              Right-bloody Commonwealth finished 1 and 2. Isn't Meyo on an oversized track too?

                The foreigners ruled, and this time they were not Africans. Hopefully, we will see a decent American time next week. Why has Berryhill been so slow this winter? Is he hurt?

                  Wasn't it 1, 2 and 3 for the Commonwealth? 1 and 2 for the colonials. Notre Dame is either 1/5 a mile (321.something meters) or resized to 320m as apparently the mile start is 9 or so meters before the finish line.

                    I think the training cycle looking towards July and August hinders early indoor quality times.

                    Unless paces are sufficiently quick, breaking 4 is almost an accident.

                    If some one was in 3:52 shape for July and August, then I'd suspect 4 to be no problem now.

                    Most are just using these indoor races as a part of training, and I doubt any one is doing anythin g close to any serious speed work whatsoever currently.
