This was yet another -very- excellent article that I simply had to share. Do you often find yourself looking at everyone else’s lane but your own?
However, watching Madison running in sprinting events has an element of frustration.
Despite the instruction of her coaches and some gentle encouragement from Karen and I, she just can’t help herself and spends most of the race looking left and right at the other runners.
Whilst other runners are focused on the finish line, she loses momentum and costs herself valuable seconds. There’s no doubt that she is trying her best, but because she allows herself to get distracted, her results aren’t indicative of her capability.
It’s not that big a deal and it’s entertaining to watch when it’s little athletics, but I suspect that there is a lesson here for the rest of us.
