As Steve Prefontaine once said I like to make people stop and say Ive never seen anyone run like that before True anybody can run but not just anybody can run track There is more to running than just the fast movement of legsRunning takes strength endurance and a tremendous amount of guts There are many races which a track runner can take part in from the fifty-yard dash to the two mile Each race falls into a particular category These categories include the sprinter the middle distance runner and long distance runner Depending on the category each athlete has their own way of mentally and physically training for a raceSprint runners must be able to move fast When you only have fifty to three hundred yards to run you depend on turnover Turnover is the speed which a runners legs move This plays a large role n sprinting Physically a runners thighs must be strong and arms fully developed with muscle to enable them to pump their way to the finish line In a sprinting race the difference between winning and losing could depend on your start Mentally they have to be ready to pour everything they have into the race Middle distance runners go through something a little tougher A middle distance runner is considered an all around runner They have the capability of running anything from a three hundred to a thousand yard run They have to train to keep speed for a long period of time Every part of their body must be strong When nearing the end of a middle distance race you hit what we runners call the wall Your body feels like jelly and all you want to do is quit Mentally like sprinters middle distance runners have to pour their heart into the race and pace themselves You have to know how fast your body will go and for how longLong distance runners are trained
