Re: Unschedule Race

Welcome! Forums Running Forum Unschedule Race Re: Unschedule Race



My feeling, which I’m sure is partly this way because my coaches through high school and college have always pushed this, is if I’m going to line up for a race, I’m going to give the race everything I have. I may not be going into the race completely rested, I might even do a bit of a workout before the start. However, once the gun goes off, I’m racing it with whatever I have at the moment.

While I know a lot of people seem to like to enter races and use them as workouts, maybe because of what my coaches taught me, I don’t see the point. If I want to do a workout, I’ll head out my front door or go to the local track and do a workout. If I want to enter a race, I’m going to race it. Personally, I’d be racing it.
