Today Second-mile run was a little different than we as teachers thought. While we covered the same distance but the difference in the terrain of the ground might have contributed to difference we saw the time results eventually.
How do you think running the same distance (1600m) on two different size courses affects your outcome time? Why might they not be the same?
How does the different pace you need to maintain impact your performance?
Which do you prefer? Why?
What an opportunity for THINKING doing things differently this time has provided us and our students.
I think as a teacher….Impact possibility
The only difference in the two setups
-The texture of the ground: artificial grass-200mts track
-Real grass-150 mts
No of laps
Did (8) laps V/S 10:5 laps after their average lap speed hence 200mts increasing and 150 their overall time taken across the same 1600 distance.
Does it has an impact psychologically?
Good kick off with mile run today.Despite the fact that 50% of my runners started with”aarrgh I don’t want to do this “.
