Below is an actual week of training for our 800m men from a couple of years ago. We had five guys run sub 1:50 that season. These guys had good natural speed - all could split 47-48 in the 4 x 400m and each was able to run a competitive 1500m - 3:47-3:50 range. Almost all of our 800m training revolved around the training concepts of "Gags", combining strength work and speed development always close.
