The biggest challenge of hurdling is the mental difficulty of the event. Especially with the 110 meter hurdles the mental aspect of the event is extremely important. A hurdler must be mentally prepared to run as fast as they can at the barriers without breaking their stride, trusting that they will not hit the hurdle and fall. Falling is an extremely painful and hard experience to come back from. However, a hurdler is taught right away that the minute the gun goes off in the race none of that matters anymore.

the 110 meter hrdles is not a hard event to do. All it really involves is being able to run full speed and jump all in one. the first hurde in the race is about 8 steps and in between the hurdle requires 3 steps to the next. the tick is not to studderstep an to be able to time yoursef. your lead leg is the first leg thats inhe air and your trail leg is the leg that you are pushing off ofan snapping over with.
