what would you like to tell us about the events you compete?
Do you use team tatics?
How do you call the runner who goes fast at the beginning, just to push the others (especially from other teams) to make them tired? Here we call them "rabbit".
Unfortunately I don't really compete on the track, I do and will train on the track when I'm at uni in speed sessions but I'm more of a long distance runner
At the moment I've been running in 5 mile, 6 mile and 10km (about 6.2 miles) road races, over the winter the focus is on cross country races, with a few more road races
I'm doing my first 10 mile race next month, bit nervous about that
Team tactics don't really come into longer distance running, the only thing I can think of is running with clubmates that are of similar ability if there are any, it's a fine line because you can either end up running too slow or too fast too soon otherwise, and run out of steam
Yeah we call them the 'hare'
although going too fast at the start happens to all runners in so many races, it's more often the inexperienced ones that it happens too more often. The more races you do, the easier it gets
I've got to go I'm training at 7!
