The emotion in athletics is huge. It is huge because it takes us months, perhaps years to build up the fitness and focus the effort on a key race. Days like Wednesday, with a moderate recovery run, stride outs and a core workout. At the end of a race, keeping your form, and being able to hold your final sprint better than others could down to core strength.
