Beautiful night at the Dean Hayes Track, full moon, 76º at 9pm. Just wanted to run a little, warm up and start from blocks.
I did 2 race pace 200s, aimed for 26.
Saucony Virrata trainers on
900m warmup, stretches, drills
2 x 80m striders on grass
Nike Superfly R3 spikes on
3 starts from blocks on the curve
2 x 200m from blocks (400m race pace) - 26.5, 26
2 starts from blocks on the curveThe second one was harder. The first one was easy. If I could follow a 26.5 with a 28.5, that would be a way to a 55 sec 400m.
Hand-timed meet in Chattanooga tomorrow night. It's supposed to be hot, 90º during the day. Hope I'll see some competition and it's not just me and my friend Bill M. I think I should be at least in the 57s if I run a smart race and don't rig up.
I feel ok. 142 lbs after workout. I should be good to go.
