Decent start. Better than last year.
57.76 - 400m
25.61 - 200m
The best thing is that I have no strains or even a hint of an injury. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.
It was my 4th fastest 400m time indoors and my 4th fastest 200m indoors. I was pretty spent after the 400m and knew I wouldn't have much for the 200m only 70 min later. It felt pretty good overall. Very fatiguing in the 400m but no serious rigging. Considering I ran a 59.00 on this track on 1/21/12, I'm doing OK. I was far more fatigued in those two January races where I ran about 59 (heh.... I even thought the timer made a mistake, I was so slow).
I entrusted my camera to bystanders to take photos of my starts. Both failed miserably. I did get a photo of my heat in the 200m, but not with me in it. I had lane 6 and had already left the blocks.
Next week, I'm going to take some time off from the track and do some sorely needed resistance and 'pre-hab'... I want to run the 55m in Feb and don't want any more hamstring issues.
As expected, I finished last in both events, but not embarrassingly far behind. I was happy to participate, it was exhilarating. I left with a smile and no injuries, good to see my 'track family' again.
