During my coverage discussions Saturday at Taco Bell Classic, it was asked what is tougher - the 800 or 400? What do you think?

800 is more difficult than the 400, however the 400 hurdles are more difficult than both

Being a former elite 400 sprinter, I would be partial to the 400m. I feel like if you studied the amount of lactic acid in the muscle tissue of a 400 sprinter vs the 800, there would more in the 400 because of the heavier volume of sprinting. My career best 400, I came through the 1st 100m at 10.7

I would say 800 you are going about 75% to 80% the entire race
