Three Things Thursday

Limestone Mile Running Strategy

I'm thinking you can do this in 9:08 or faster.
Looks like there's a bit of a hill from .20 - .60 so I'd go out quick with the downhill at start and then when the hills come, remember your hill training and relax and pump your arms, lean slightly into the hill, and push forward. When you reach the top, you have a bit over a quarter left so let it all go here: Push, push, push!!! Take a gu or some shotblocks, something with some quick energy (sugar) just before so it kicks in right when that hill starts.



Miles are tough (I ran them in college); you gotta conserve a little because if you go all out at the start, you're dead by the 100M mark, so go quick but not an all out sprint ... leave the all out sprint for when you reach the top of the hill and it's all basically downhill to the end (well, a small hill there but nothing you can't handle!!). You're tough and mean and you GOT THIS!!!
