This is Week 4, Day six.
On this day, we encourage you to find a small meet, and race an event or two that are shorter or longer than your normal distance. It is about racing experience. The more you race, within reason, the more experiences that you have, the better all around racer you have.
I loved all comers meets. During the summers, I would run the 2 mile many weeks, and during the winter, the same, then, try a 5000m. With my brother, who ran the mile, I would have him run a mile, and 4x400m, or an 800m and a 4x400m.
