When paced correctly, fatigue creeps up on you, gradually. Unfortunately, there are no clear-cut signs that you are about to encounter “The Wall” until you are there. This often happens within the length of a football field. You’re feeling tired but confident of finishing and within a few yards feel suddenly exhausted. The muscles don’t work the way they did a few minutes before. The only running form that can work is a “shuffling” mode in which the feet are next to the ground, touching lightly, with a short stride.
