3. The Flying V
Since this pattern is simple, really focus on hitting top speed during each segment. Start at 1, sprint to 2, return to 1, sprint to 3, and return to 1.
EYES UP FRONT When you’re sprinting through the formations, try to look up rather than staring down at the field. The cones and disks are merely a rough guide of where to sprint, Cook says, so it’s OK if your patterns aren’t perfect. (This is good practice if you play basketball, tennis, or baseball, too—any sports that force you to run without looking down.) If you use poles, like the ones above, it’s easier to face front, but make sure to stay low and lean into turns when changing directions.
