The Valor Christian senior - and future Stanford Cardinal - cruised his way through the 3,000, running back-to-back-to-back-to-back (you get the idea) 34-second laps, without varying the pace more than a half a second one way or the other for 15 laps.
He made his 8:37 look easy, which was frightening, given that it's a US No. 7 without an altitude conversion (on a 200 meter, flat track.)
The Mountain Lion Field House sits right around 6,291, which brings up the debate: How much time does the conversion take off?
Roughly 20-25 or so seconds, which would make Sprout's "workout" anywhere from 8:12 to 8:17.
