4. Get Better Feedback
If you are running a 10K race on the roads, you might be lucky enough to get splits every mile, which oftentimes can be all over the place because of terrain, turns, weather, etc. It can be difficult to assess and evaluate how the effort of one mile compared to another. When racing on the track, however, you (or someone in the stands) can record your splits every 200 or 400 meters, which will provide more insight and better feedback into how you reached each split on the watch.
