Long-distance runners use two different kinds of cognitive strategies: "associative" and "dissociative" . Associative strategies involve attending closely to physical sensations, while dissociative strategies involve mostly ignoring physical sensations. Associative strategies, unlike dissociative ones, require so much concentration that they result in mental exhaustion lasting more than a day. Since it is important for long-distance runners to enter a race mentally refreshed.

Which one of the following most logically completes the argument?

A Long-distance runners should not rely heavily on associative strategies during training the day before they run in race

B Unless they regularly train using associative strategies, nog-distance runners should use dissociative strategies during races

C Maximizing the benefits of training for long-distance running involves frequently alternating associative and dissociative strategies

D Long-distance runners are about evenly divided between those who use dissociative strategies during races and those who use associative strategies during races

E In long-distance running, dissociative strategies are generally more effective for a day's training run than are associative strategies
