I did the usual hot tub stretches then hit the road.
800m run on the road - untimed
dynamic stretches, drills
Wow, do I feel heavy. I'm 148.4, but feel heavier. New shoes feel good. Like racing flats. I will try and use them more on the track and less on the road. Both tracks at MTSU and Sewanee are under construction and unavailable right now, but I have backups at St. Andrews Sewanee, and Oakland, HS.
Tonight I will try 10 flights up the stadium stairs.
Fall Competition Schedule:
Due to the new Sr. Olympics schedule, my first opportunity to race will be at the Lawrenceburg, TN Sr. district meet on Aug 21 - just 5 weeks away. I think in these first few meets I probably shouldn't attempt a 100m or maybe not even a 200m race. We'll see. For these meets, my official age is 54 - the top of my age group since the National Finals are in 2014. These are low key hand timed Sr. meets.
Aug 21 - Lawrenceburg, TN District meet 200m (tentative)
Aug 22 - Lawrenceburg, TN District meet 400m
Sept. 14 - Chattanooga, TN District meet (400m and 200m?)
Sept. 28 - Greater Nashville, TN District meet (400m, 200m, 100m?)
Isn't it a bitch about Tyson Gay. I was so looking forward to seeing him race Bolt.
