Ok so I'm a high school distance runner and i have a question. I'm primarily a 3200 runner but I want to run the 1600. I want to run more than one event in a single meet. The problem is I'm afraid it will be too tiring in a short time span in a dual meet only being an hour or so apart. Most people would say do the 1600 and 800 but I don't want to do the 800. Any advice?

@1538598292 It is doable. But it does depend on what you do in that recovery time and how well conditioned you are. What order are the two events in your state? In Missouri, the 1600 is pretty early, then the 800, and the 3200 is at the end before the 4x400. So, it is not uncommon to see 16/32 runners, or even 16/8/32 runners. Or even 4x800/16/8/32 runners. BUt again, it boils down to conditioning and recovery.
