Back up to 800s this week, 5 x 800m to be exact. 800s are a tough session, if people are keeping record of their times their 800m time should be of the order of about 3 seconds per lap slower than their corresponding 400m time. The front of the lead group were coming in at about 81/82s for their 400s last week, I would expect about 2m:45s for the 800m, second group leaders were at about 1m:32s so should be coming in at about 3m:10s. Usual time and format, meet at the Sonia O’Sullivan track in the UCC grounds on the Mardyke at 7:00pm. Parking inside the Mardyke is limited to those who are members of the Arena.
