Differences and similarities to learning to drive and learning how to sprint the 100 metres

You never stop learning to sprint the 100 metres.

You never stop learning to drive safely.

I have to keep reminding myself of M-S-P-S-L (Mirrors-Signal-Position-Speed-Look) when I am driving.

I have to keep reminding myself of "knees high", "toes high" when I am sprinting.

You have to keep concentrating when driving, constantly working on what you are going to do, how you are going to make situations safe.

I lose the "presence of mind" when I am sprinting hard and it can be tricky to get it back.

When driving after you pass your test, you are virtually on your own.

When sprinting the Coach may shout things to help you get your technique correct.
