All through high school I ran the hurdles and trained for the 110 and 300 boys hurdles while also running on the 4×4 team. However, I think I may be a better 800 meter runner as I lack speed. I think that I am only good at the hurdles due to my form, but I am not sure. I would like to train in the summer for one of these events, but which should I train for? The 400 hurdles or the 800? Here are some of my personal bests:
300 IH: 41.2
110 HH: 15.1
I am tall and kinda gangly ( 6 ft 4 180 lbs ) and I am wondering which event I would have the most natural ability in so I can train over the summer for that event, and hopefully run it in college. I beleive I could have gotten better times this past year but I was out for half of the year due to a hamstring injury, so these were my times at the district and state meet after not running for 3 weeks due to an injury. I keep debating between the 400 hurldes and the 800, I am not sure if I could be potentially good at the 800 or not.
