Secrets To Success: The EXCLUSIVE Sukhi Khosla Training Log

Leon High School coach Andrew Wills isn't one to talk strategy or give away training tips, but I figured I would ask anyways. So when he told me he'd fill us in on senior to be Sukhi Khosla's preparation for the Dream Mile it came as quite the surprise. Khosla's 4:05.96 is the fastest true 1600 meters in the country this year, and fourth fastest if you factor in mile conversions. He posted that blistering time at the 3A State Finals, a week after winning the 3A Region 1 Championship in a time of 4:06.45. See how the  3A Cross Country State Finals, 1600 and 3200 meter state champion prepares for one of the biggest meets in his high school career and the chance to make history in the mile.

Coach Wills' Take: 

"It was a solo1K effort at the Leon track. The goal time was 2:30 and he ran 2:30.45. The temperature was 92 degrees and humid. It was a nice effort after five weeks off of racing. On the Monday and Wednesday progession runs he usually starts around seven minute pace and works down to six minutes.The purpose of the Tuesday and Thursday workouts were just to touch on a little speed with moderate effort. Just trying to stay sharp."
