Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the impact that artificial pace setting has on pace accuracy and goal pace attainment in comparison to trials when conventional pace setting is utilized or, alternatively, when no form of pace setting is available for performers to rely on. In this study researchers will attempt to compare trials run without a means of pace setting (control), with standard human pace setting, and with the use of artificial (auditory and visual) pace setting. Researchers will then compare the results and evaluate if the use of standard and artificial pace setting is justified when comparing acceleration profiles, speed profiles, and target time accuracies. There lacks significant research into the benefits at the collegiate track level regarding the effectiveness of various pacing methods, despite the widespread use of pacing in track and field and in a variety of other sports and activities. This research will attempt to quantify the supposed benefits of various types of pace setting.
