Divide and conquer

Divide the race into 4-6 different sections to break it down and make the distance seem more manageable. Any more than six and it will get too confusing. Have a different aim for each segment, so you can feel yourself progressing and so it’s not just about getting halfway or to the finish. This will help maximise your chances of getting to the end in a good condition and on target.
