The WR in the mile is 3:43.13. It was set with splits of 55.2, 56.0, 55.8, and 54.9. Even if you were attempting to break the world record in the 2400, 55 would be too fast for the first 400.

you go as fast as you think you can,
once you're going that fast you see how long you can hang with it
as it turns out...you can hang longer than you'd think.
That doesn't explain what happens physiologically though... which is why I was speculating.

Would be too fast in your mind, but it gets me a good score every time, so is it really too fast? When I slowed down to what most people would have called a good
pace" to put me right on the time I wanted, I did worse, and the change was only literally 35 seconds for that lap (from 55 to 90). I think the psychological aspect goes a long way.

I agree with this...I'm better off to set out on a 400m race at faster than my 400m pace and then let the competition help me hang on at the end. Probably something physiological going on, definitely something psychological going on.

i speculate that it's a combination of tiny homunculi and ether...

but then i've never held that things should be as complicated as possible, and if possible more so.
