Mary Cain

July 8, 2013

This Sports Illustrated article about Mary Cain has a very small window into her training under Alberto Salazar:

Salazar says Cain has maxed at 61 miles for a week; leading up to the nationals, she and Moser ran a workout that included 10 200s in an average of 27.1 seconds with a 200 jog recovery at 5,000-foot altitude. After Cain’s high-school-record 15:45.46 in the 5,000 meters on June 8, she did two 400s in 59 and 57 seconds.

I wish we knew the pace of the recovery jog.  The 200’s are ~400 race pace and the 400’s are ~600 race pace.
