Yeah....I tend to agree with this moreso than an 8:45. There are much faster US women over the mile/1500m who have only barely gotten to the 8:45 mark.
Right on. Her run today converts to 8:55+
I know this is meat for another grinder....so to speak (
)....but I HATE conversions...whether they're for Cain or anyone else, male or female!
Conversions are ESTIMATES...GUESSES!!
They may be learned estimates.
Estimates by renowned experts.
But they are still just ESTIMATES....GUESSES!!!
Tonight, Mary Cain was OFFICIALLY timed at the 3000 meter mark, enroute to her two mile.
She ran 9:07.53 there.
There is NO NEED to estimate her time!!
Or convert her time!!
While I firmly believe she COULD have run 3K in 8:55 tonight (actually, much faster!!), she did NOT!!
