I can say fairly definitively I haven't yet begun to lose a lot of speed from my 2012 Gold n' Silver season. The 200m was better than the 400m today ... in the 400, went out a bit too fast and paid. But my 200m race was in my top 5 times, even running just an hour after the 400m, on not such a great track, and into a slight headwind, and from lane 2.
400m - 56.25
200m - 25.06
I did finish last in the 400m (not by much), but managed to beat 2 guys in the 200m. Surprisingly, it was much more competitive than previous years.
My friend Roya made her track and field debut ... racing the 100m in 16. It took a lot of courage for her to do this and I'm very proud of her, never having used starting blocks or spikes before yesterday. She looks like a pro here in lane one. Bravo!
