Do you want to run faster in your next race? Maybe you want to finally finish strong or run a new PR?
But easier said than done. Runners always have a lot of questions about race strategy:
How do I negative split a marathon?
Should I run even splits or run the first few miles slower?
How do I get through the middle of a race where I always slow down?
When do I know if I should go out really fast?
But instead of trying to figure it out all by yourself, there’s a better way: ask a bunch of experts!
I asked 13 top coaches, Boston Qualifiers, ultramarathoners, and even an Olympic Trials Qualifier for their best race advice and pacing strategies.
And I put it together in an ebook for you – for free. Download it here and it’ll be in your inbox in less than an hour.
Here are the experts who contributed their favorite racing strategies:
- Jay Johnson, Running Times contributor and creator of the Building a Better Runner DVDs
- Thad McLaurin, certified coach and personal trainer
