Two new meets have emerged that will involve less travel. Both, unfortunately are at high schools, not really good tracks, but both are FAT timed.
Nashville USATF has put together a Masters Meet on 5/02. I think they may have done it as a response for not having a masters category in their TN Association Meet - which I think is technically required by USATF. It's going to be a real small affair, just a week away and only a few have registered. These local masters meets are essentially a solo time trial. I will do this instead of driving to IN for the Butler meet. It will save me a lot of miles. The track at Hunters Lane looks rather poor, a 6 lane black track.
Lee University is holding a meet on 5/10 at Walker Valley H.S. Kind of sad a university has to hold a home meet at a local high school. The track is at least an 8 lane red track, but it looks rough and faded. It's being billed as a "Twilight Last Chance Meet." It's only an hour from Sewanee.
The last in my college schedule looks like it may be the U of Louisville meet on 5/16... if I can get in. That will be my last chance to race on a decent track.
Kind of crazy this season has been. If I do these meets, I will have raced 6 consecutive weekends, 9 of the last 10.
Thinking about scratching the 400m tomorrow and just running the 200m. Don't want to run a lane one 400m. Also, looking back at the April '12 week where I set a PR. I was training everyday, including light workouts on pre race days. So, having a little time to kill, I went out and did an 800m on the street. 2:32, not full effort but enough to make me sweat.
