How do I improvemy 800m?
ahhh that sucks. my freshman year in highschool at my very first meet i was just warming up and it was the first time i had ever worn spikes and i wasn't used to them so i took off fine, but i only went about 15 yards and when i stopped the spikes dug into the ground and i fell right on my face, it was so embarassing
I just ran a 5:07 mile, what should the time of my next mile be?

yea i've tripped before. Coming off the blocks to hurdles i took 3 steps and tripped over my own feet. you just have to get up and finish the race and laugh it off with your friends later. It'll be fun to look back on and be like "I can't believe i tripped in a track meet.

What's an average time for a 14yo's 40 yd sprint?
sort of the same thing happened to me once but in an industrialized softball team event. It came my time to bat and i waited for a good one, and it finally came. I hit it hard and that ball was a triple at least and I took off wide open to first base and only made it one sprint and fell down. I remember the embarrassment to this day although it doesn't bother me now but it has stayed with me .
Long distance walking question?

Could I prepare for a 10 mile run... in five months?
Are you kidding? It's my first year in track and I've fallen and tripped so many times already.
The most embarrassing time was when I was practicing for the relay and no one tripped me, I just fell flat on my face, scratching up my hands and legs too. Embarrassment happens. (Especially when you don't want it too!)
How can i improve my stride's distance? I take small steps...?
On my first (and incidentally, second-to-last) hurdle race, I crashed straight into the hurdle and did a face plant two feet before finish line. Got second place xD
What motivates you to become a better runner?
No but once I started so hard that the blocks flew out of the ground and hit the fence 50 feet away and ripped a hole in it.
people asked me afterwards, woah! you ran w/out blocks? and I said no. I'm just a beast.
