Occurs to me that I have been at this now for 13 months - (due to those silly fall "Sr Games" events). I've been training almost continuously since August '14 when I was doing foundational long sprint repeats and weights. I kind of took a break in Feb and scaled back a bit, but came out in early March and ran a PR 200m. Even after the injury on 3/29, I still continued to work, taking off only 5 days after that horrendous hip flexor tear. I learned how to rehab. Learned how to run a 400m. Found a way to get faster as I get older. The track has been a good place for me to be, truly a lifestyle, a challenge.
I took it easy today. I ran in my Olympic Team USA speed suit supplied by the USATF. Beautiful but humid, high 70ºs at the Dean Hayes track. I got to share the track with 2 female sprinters from Ghana who will be racing in the African Championships soon. They run similar times to mine in the 400/200m.
