Well, Google searching for "1600m training program" had this thread as a page-2 result.
Other programs I found were either total bull**** written merely to add pages to a website, or sets of intervals switching up for each day of the week, which seem workable.
I did find out who our track coach from 1977 was though... He was actually a guidance counselor at my high school too... Up until this year... He's taking a year off for chemotherapy and cancer treatment... I may still be able to contact him...
