300m event run from blocks, lane 5, 400m start - 39.75 (curve-straight-curve)
200m from blocks - 25.75 / 1 min rest - 100m - 14 sec
2 x 50m full power starts from blocks from the 400m startIt reminded me of 'that feeling' at the 300m mark of the 400m. This was at race pace, full effort. I think I may have a chance to break 56 my first time out this season in the 400m if I run it correctly and don't go out too fast. This 300m event run, my splits were 25.75/14 ... and the straight was into a slight headwind. If I could bring it home in less than 16, it would be sub 56. I was definitely feelin' it at 300m so fatigue would be a factor. I think I can improve on my present condition with more speed work. I should be ok to run the 200m but I'll decide on Sat. If I do, I may take it a bit cautious. Don't want anything to happen at this stage of the game. I think my best shot at a 400m PR would be to turn splits of 26/28.75 or something like that. 25.75/29 would do it too. I really shouldn't expect too much in this first race.
Feel pretty good, sore ankle, but that is all. Have been very light lately... 142.5 after workout. About a lb lighter than when I ran my PRs in Jan and March.
