800 Meter Run (Half Mile Run)
1. Make sure you get out in good position in the first 200. Run the tangent on the backstretch after the cut in.
2. Get in good position from the 200 to the 400. Your first 400 meters should be faster than your second 400. You have to get out fast.
3. From 400 to 600 push the pace. If you relax, you are slowing down big time. There is no time for relaxing in an 800.
4. Push it all the way to the finish. Make a move at the 600. Don't wait for the homestretch to start kicking. Put the hammer down sooner rather than later.
1600 Meter Run (Mile Run)
1. Don't go out to fast. You want to start fast, but stay relaxed.
2. Make a move in the middle. I tried to always run the middle 400 meters fast. This was from 600 meters to 1000 meters I would try to get into good position for the finish.
3. Run big. Don't let people cut you off.
4. Set a goal time for each race. Know what time to shoot for at the 1/2 mile so you have a chance at that time toward the finish.
5. Race! This sounds silly, but it's a great tip. You have to run like a little kid and try to race someone to the finish. Get after it and kick it home.
