Last week our school had cross country trials. The most challenging thing was maintaining my pace, but next time I will remember to slowdown at the start, and save my energy. The task was very hard, but I was in the highest group and I finished 3rd.
Although that was a good result, next time I will do better. Last year when we did the district race I finished 12th, which is a substitute place. When you come 11th or 12th, you get a substitute place for the regional race. This year I want to make top 10 in districts.
Do you guys like running long distances? If you do can you give me some tips?
