Personally, I run my first lap a little easier, and start my kick with about 300 meters to go. When I was in 8th grade (I'm a girl) I could run mine in around 2:30ish. My coaches always told me that i went out too slow, so i would recommend not sprinting at the beginning, but running fairly hard.
Before you start working out, make sure you have a good pair of running shoes. You are at a high risk of getting injured should you put on shoes that don't fit you. The wear and tear of shoes may not be visible to the naked eye but it may result in a serious injury. Therefore, investing in a sturdy pair of shoes is essential. Follow the tips given below to get your hands on the right stuff.

The historical run by Hussain Bollt in 2009.
The distance between 300 Hurdles (or 400 Hurdles) is 35 meters. The distance to the first hurdle (in high school races) is 45 meters and 10 meters from the last (8th) hurdle to the finish line. This is exactly the same as the first 300 meters of a 400 Hurdle race, though the relative position on the track is moved to finish at the common finish line. All the distances on hurdle spacing are available at: http://www.trackinfo.org/hurdles101.html
Canada's Ed Whitlock holds the world record, having run 38:04.13 in Brisbane in 2001
I'm on a track team so... I suggest that when you have a track meet, stretch ALOT. Yes, running is always important, but you do want to stay as loose as possible. I run 4 miles every day. Though I'm not a long distance runner, it deffinately gets you ready for the big day. Do whatever is most comfortable and I'm sure that you'll do well.
Well there is many factors put into this question. It depends on how much experience and strength you have or if your female or male etc. If your a beginner probably around a 2:18. If you erg often maybe around a 2:00. Oylimpic rowers could get a 1:21. But always try to improve by 2 seconds each time you do a 2000 test or race. I hoped this helped! good luck on your race
Pasta is usually good for energy, stamina etc. However, for me personally I had to have the gluten free alternative which I don't think was quite as effective personally.
In countries where Imperial measures prevail some athletics tracks are 440 yards (i.e. 1/4 mile) for one lap. So 12 laps would be, um... 3 miles?
It really depends if you are short, tall or inbetween! But i jump 1''31, but that is my highest, im in the seventh grade and really tall though

As far as I am aware it was a 3.71m jump by Arne Tvervaag (http://www.friidrett.no/files/%7B4EB9DEBD-54FD-457A-AF91-62590508185D%7D.htm). The world record for the running long jump (as performed at the Olympic Games) is 8.95m by Mike Powell form the USA.
The men's world record for running 800 meters was set in 2010 by David Rudisha of Kenya in a time of 1:41.01.
The women's world record for running 800 meters was set in 1983 by Jarmila Kratochvílová of the Czech Republic in a time of 1:53.28.
It all depends on your shoes.
I run Cross Country for my high school. Over the course of 3 years, I have put over 300 miles on my shoes over all kinds of terrain. They still offer good support and comfort, but the tread is wearing down a good bit.
The easiest way to tell how your shoes are wearing is:
1) Inspecting the tread on the bottom of the shoe. If the tread had holes in it or is becoming increasingly flimsy, your shoes probably need replacing. This is a sign of high use, like my running shoes...
2) Consider how your feet fit in the shoe. Not just sizing differences. If your experience feet, ankle, or shin problems (pain) it could be because of your shoes wearing out. The easiest was for a show to wear is in support. If the shoe has slowly lost its original "springy-ness" or comfort in the arch of your feet, chances are, the support in your shoes is becoming inadequate.
Track and Field was started in ancient Greece around 776 BC around 3,000 years ago it took place to honor the Greek gods.
It depends what event do you want to train for? because i myself run the 1600m and usually i go run like 3-5 miles depending on how i am feeling and sometimes some speed workouts. It just depends what event you are planning on running now if you are running the 400meters I'm assuming you lift weight and you do a lot of strength training. It just depends.
getting off of this computer and actually running would be the first step, after that you want to run to your local drug dealer and ask him if he has steroids. usually they will. shoot up three times a day, and within two weeks you'll notice a great change in your speed and muscle mass.
Houston McTear ran a hand timed 9.0 in high school in the early 1970s and Ivory Crockett ran a manual timed 9.0 in 1974. It is not an international competition event anymore and a world record for it has not be recognized since the 1970s.
Anything faster than a 4.60 second forty yard dash is excellent. A high school cornerback would be expected to run at least a 4.80 second forty yard dash, though playing speed is much more important than timed speed on a track.
A high school cornerback who would like to play major college football (Division 1A [FBS]) would probably need to run a sub-4.60 forty, while elite prospects would need to run a 4.50 forty or better.
Average time would be about 15-16 seconds
A good time would be 14 seconds
13 seconds or less is amazing (girls)
Average: 14-15 seconds
Good: 13 seconds
Amazing: 12 or less (would get you into States) (boys)
