Starting Practice

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, March 22, 2014 with No comments
Do we need some starting practice at our Sunday morning training sessions? Dave employed a "back of the pack" starting technique in Hobart recently. When the starting gun fired for his 5000m and 10000m events, the track runners were off but Dave was one stride length back, half turned away, looking at his stop watch as he pressed it....

It is worth practising every aspect of your event...

Meanwhile in Jamberoo we recently visited our eldest daughter's family (of six). We went over to Albion Park Little Athletics to watch number two (of six) compete in the 200m hurdles and the 200m.

SpeedyJennyGran at the Albion Park track with number six (of six). Another three or four years and she will join Little Athletics I imagine, she is very keen and appears never to tire. She ran to the end of the field and sprinted back to show us her speed, three or four times. All part of a normal day.

Number six (of six), unprompted, showing us her starting technique. Well she is only two!
