Pre race day - outdoor meet #3

A good feeling workout tonight at dusk.

Perfect cool evening, mid 60sº. Warm enough to run shirtless.

I did a brief warmup and then a negative split 400. Wow, did it feel easy!

800m warmup, stretches, drills

saucony spikes on

400m - 60 (31, 29)

2 x 200m - 28, 28

blocks starts

400m cool down jog on grass
No physical issues, just a little heavier now than I'd like. After dinner, 142.6 lbs.

My feet felt so good tonight with some new Smart-wool socks on. Of course, mens socks (at Dicks) don't fit me so I have to buy the pretty purple pink fringe women's socks. They fit perfectly. It was like running on air. What a difference. For $15 a pair, they better be good, and they are. I don't use socks for racing, only for training.

With 4 meets in a row of progressively faster times, I feel a little pressure to deliver another PR. I've never run at TSU's outdoor track, don't know if it's fast. I hope it is comparable to their indoor track. Lane 6 is good, but all the fast guys are inside of me. If I get out fast, I'll probably lead the charge into the last turn ... where the fun begins. No one in my 400m heat has seed times less than 53, and no one under 24 in the 200m, so they should be a good competitive heats.

It's just tomorrow at TSU, and next weekend at Vandy, and the college season is over for me. Tomorrow's Boston Moon Classic starts at 9:30 am and runs on a rolling schedule with both high school and college heats. There is no way of estimating exatly when I'll be running. I'm guessing around noon - 1, but I'd better be there by 10:30 ish.
