Also if you have any advice about how to run these that would be good
Where can I buy power gels/clif bloks?
I am more famaliar with boys times, but i know the top girls in massachuesetts run a couple seconds under 60 in the 400, and a little under 2:20 in a good race for the 800. These are the TOP girls, a very good time for a high school girl in these events is anywhere near 60 for the 400, and around 2:30 for the half.
As for running these events, it is good to do a decent amount of miles and run these miles fast. Running about 20-35 miles per week would be ideal and much of this should be interval training. A good example workout would be to jog a mile, run 8 400s as fast as you can with rest in between, then jog a mile. This would be an example of a more difficult workout. Other days you may just want to go for a 4 mile jog.
As long as you are out there running you should get better.
Tips on running?
In New Jersey the fastest girls are running about 55 in the 400 and 2:13 to 2:14 in the 800. One of my former youth runners ran 2:14 a couple of times this year indoors.
The times will be faster during the outdoor season figure close to 2 seconds in the 400 and 5 or 6 seconds in the 800
