    Re: track sucks

    I agree...track sucks! I only do it for cross country too.

    mm-hm. me too. actually i really liked it this yr but i had to drop out of the mile b/c i was no completely recovered from running a hard 3000. i think track sucks simply b/c you need speed,speed, speed which not all ppl have and you have to have a coach or someone pacing you and telling you you are being too slow. in xc all you have to do is do alot of distance.

    yeah, the laps go by so fast b/c they are so short. that is the only thing that makes a 2 mile in indoors endurable if at all.

    yes, some cannot handle this challenge of running monotonous laps around a track 8 times and even more  in times in indoors when all they do all winter is jog several laps around a set of bleachers. i swear i am slower after a week of that than i was before i start that in the offseason. and then not really getting much long distance endurance back b/c all you ever do is focus on leg speed when once you get back to running on a track. that is the differance between track and xc.

    I noticed when I was doing a six mile run a month ago, my 5th mile was my fastest. I am better in longer distances.
