Why a Fast Start Makes You Suffer

In the meantime, you’re running on borrowed energy, powering your muscles with quick but unsustainable anaerobic metabolism, which produces byproducts that ultimately lead to muscle fatigue.

Interestingly, that ramp-up rate, known as oxygen uptake kinetics (which I’ve written about previously, such as here and here ), varies from person to person. In a bit of tragic irony, middle-distance runners, whose fast race starts incur the greatest oxygen deficits, tend to have relatively slow oxygen kinetics. That may be because middle-distance runners need to have exceptional anaerobic capacities, so their bodies have learned to rely more on anaerobic energy.
