In January of 2016 I was able to manage (4) x 1000m at 1:47.5.
What I'm wondering is how you feel those 4x pertain to 2K? Last yr for 2K you did 1:46.6 in Dec and 1:47.9 at CB. Also, there is the rest factor and the relative difficulty of doing them. I'm thinking that 4x750m at, say, rest 4', done without totally dying should be around 2 sec below 2K pace. The 1:48.2 says to me 1:50.2 for 2K which is just slightly more than your last 2K at 1:49.9 [think I got that right]. Last yr, I think you were in around 1:46 shape for 4x750m. That aligns well with CB. Of course, how one feels on a certain day is a not an insignificant factor.
My recovery from URI is really creeping along. I too wanted to do 4x750m yesterday. Quit after 3 @1:45.2, [1:43.2,1:45.2, 1:47.2], but was getting slower and dying by last. No need to torture on a fourth. Mon felt pretty good, but Wed was a relapse. At this point, it does appear that this old guy will not have a chance to whip the mountain man at Ga Tech.
