I would like to hear what your strategies are the 400m dash. Whether you are a coach or an athlete, could you please tell me what you do or what your coach has you do.
This is what I have told my athletes.
1. Set a rhythem the first 200m, I would like you to come through 200m at +:1.0-:2.0 of your 200m pr.
2. Gradually accel from 200m – 300m.
3. Maintain form, relax, and focus the last 100m.
Thoughts on this as well as what you believe should be done for the 400m.
