The purposive sampling technique was employed used For the purpose of this study 30 male athletes belonging to state and Inter-University level 800mts runners from sports hostel, stadium and Universities were selected as the subjects of the study. The age of the subjects ranged between 17-30 years. Researcher is find out the relationship of pace with selected Physical and Physiological variables in middle distance running Pearson’s product moment correlation was applied and for predicting the 800 meters performance on the basis of selected physical and physiological variables, multiple regression analysis was employed. Level of significance was set at 0.05 level.
The mean and standard deviation for selected physical variables of 800mts runners were as follows:Height (131.57 ± 4.08 sec.), Fat percentage (12.25 ± 1.64),for Heart rate per minute,Pre-test (53.70 ± 3.94), Post-test (182.37 ± 7.31; for Blood lactate Pre-test (5.86 ± 0.86 m.mol/lit), Post-test (20.08 ± 2.89 m.mol/lit), Hemoglobin was (14.76 ± 1.28%) respectively.
Co-efficient of correlation of selected physical variables i.e. Standing Height is -0.083, Body Weight is -0.061, Percentage of Fat is -0.236. which is lesser than the required tabulated value. It indicates that there is no significant relationship of Standing Height, Percentage of Fat, and Body Weigh with the performance of 800mts runners. It indicates that there is no significant relationship of Standing Height with the performance of 800mts runners.
