As the old Aesop fable states........"slow and steady wins the race"!
Most people in races do not follow this strategy however. Looking at splits in a lot of races for us "normal folk" the 2nd half is almost always slower than the 1st half.
However, professional athletes remain even pace, and often do negative splits! The tortoise was also successful from using this strategy!
If I stop tearing off over the first mile, often clocking 30 seconds per mle quicker than my average overall pace, will I get a PB or will I just be 30 seconds slower!!??
Interested to hear from anyone who has had similar pacing dilemma's?
