Hi. My name is Shane Paul Neil from Seacoast Multisport and I'll be talking about three tips to run a better 800 meters. While 800 meters isn't a sprint, it's still one of the premier races in track and field. If you're looking into entering an 800 meters, there are three tips I would highly recommend for you.
One, get used to running longer distance in your off season. Whether it's a local 5K or a cross-country, you're going to need the stamina that those will bring you for when it's time to compete for the 800 meters.
My second tip is to focus on your running form. Because of the length of the 800 meters and it's grueling nature, running form is very, very key. Breakdowns in running form can be very common, as well. You want to make sure that you're doing running drills so that you maintain your running form as much as possible, even through fatigue.
My final tip for the 800 meters is practice your 200. The final kick over the last 200 meters makes or breaks the average 800 meters runner.
Those are three tips for running a better 800 meters.
