Just thought I would throw this out there to see if anyone has any good advice. I have found the last two seasons that my starts are killing me. I feel like I go all out to stay in the top 1/4 of the group going for the hole shot (which I never get) and get burned out too quickly and suffer while everyone passes me. I feel like I get stronger as the race goes on but I never really recover from that first effort. This year I have added in more threshold training and max intervals hoping that will help. I know convential wisdom says start slower and I am going to try that approach - just wanted to see if anyone had some suggestions.
