You NEED to get slower.
None of those things are reliable sources of information. All of those things are nonscientific and anecdotal. Does needing to get slower really make sense to you? In all other events, slowing down means you mispaced yourself.
A simple model of entropy accumulation suggests that for any reasonable relation between entropy generation and speed, the optimal race strategy is to run the rst half of the race faster than the second. Such a strategy causes the entropy density gradient across the boundary of the working muscle to take on a large value early in the race, which increases the entropy eux. That this is in fact the optimal race strategy is proven by the overwhelming preponderance of positive-split races in the set of world records for one-lap and two-lap races.
