11 months ago you couldn’t run 100 meters Almost go time for all (boys and girls) JV runners. Runners to your mark… Go. You’ve learned the multiple benefits of making your first mile your slowest. Next up, you’ll learn how to maintain the second mile pace without falling off the first mile pace. First mile in 10:30 was 30 seconds ahead of target time (11 minutes). Fell slightly off pace by 17 seconds but still netted a 43 second gain against 2-mile game-plan. You’re learning to gradually pick up your pace over the last 800 meters. Finish line is one minute away. Well under your previous PR of 33:40. Remember 11 months ago you couldn’t run 100 meters? • • • • • This website is about our BODY.
