Complete resistance workout today. Wondering if I should ever attempt to run the 100m again. I ran in four 100m races last year and was injured in the last 2 attempts, the first just slightly. I ran a hand timed 11.94 in that race despite the ham tweek. I love the 100m. I could run it on Sept. 28.
Because of the new Sr. Games Schedule, I am technically competing as a 54 yr old - (my age on 12/31/14) ... so, it is the last opportunity to go after state records in my age group at the State meet in June '14. I think state records are only recognized in the FAT timed State meet. Understandable, since a lot of weird shit goes on at these very unofficial hand timed meets. Last two state meets, I was not 100% and I had to forego the 200m both times. The 200m record should be an easy get at 25.7 (h) ... unless there is a severe headwind. The 100m record is 12.32, which would require my A-game to beat ... I've only twice run faster than that FAT timed, then again, I've run very few FAT 100s.
Today, 2 sets complete resistance workout. Glutes, hips, adductors, calves, hams, abs, upper body. Also some squat jumps.
Tomorrow, if I can get my butt out of bed early, I may go to Oakland HS to run a few 800s. It will be painful. I seriously doubt I can get under 3 min. Last Oct., I was in better shape and my first outing did two 800s in 2:39 and 2:49, and that was in spikes. I'll shoot for 3min, it will give me a bench mark.
A week from Fri., July 26, I will see Dr. Willers for what I expect will be my final visit and xrays; and I will seek 'official' clearance to run. After that, I could expect to do speed work in spikes if I want to.
My foot feels fine. But, I'm 148 and need to lose several lbs.
