How is running speed affected by ground surface?
I'm wondering if anyone has come across any research on how different surfaces affect running pace? I don't race much, but I do find myself sometimes running road races, sometimes on 'tracks', other times on grass and find it hard to make any meaningful comparison between one and the other. Any thoughts?
OK - look at times for 10k
fastest times - track
next fastest - road
off road - slowest
says everything really.
