Hurdling is a SKILL !! - You must constently practice the skill to improve it. 100m Hurdlers can never be fast enough !!! – You can always work on your speed. 300m or 400m Hurdlers are can always be in better shape. - - Unless you are Michael Johnson, You can become a faster 400m runner. Hurdlers are a special breed. Why do things in life without obstacles ? Things are more interesting and satisfying when you have some barriers.
