Saucony trainers on
400m warmup, stretches, drills
3 x 300m w/ 2 min rest - 47, 49, 51
4 x 200m w/ 1 min rest - 30, 31, 32, 31It felt good afterward, no issues or pains. 144 lbs after workout. This week's weather looks terrible - ice/snow/rain, and I am back to work (sort of ) next week, and doing a big moving project for a friend Thurs - Sat, so it's going to be hard to train this week, but I will find a way. I usually don't do 2 days in a row but I may go out tomorrow because I will have the time. I'll be driving about 16 hrs between Thurs-Sun.
Thinking about looking into orthodic inserts in my training shoes since they alway wear on the outside and become slanted. Right now the outside pad is about 3/8" thinner than the inside.
This Sunday meet is important to me as it may be the only nice track I'll race on before Nationals in a 400. This is one of 3 possible meets I could race at on the Birmingham Crossplex track. The other possibilities are a week later - the KMS Invite - 1/31. I will try to get into Vanderbilt that weekend but I'm doubtful. Then on the same track, the Samford open on Feb 12-13. Then it's off to the Millrose a week later, and 2 weeks later, Nationals. I probably won't run in my hometown meet in Sewanee on 2/6.
I was contacted by Alan and James to put together a World Record attempt on the M55 4x200m relay at Nationals. This is 3/4 of our American Record 4x100m relay team. If we can get a 4th person like Don, we could definitely get the World Record. We'd have to avg 25.15 a leg and on a good track, we can definitely all do that and more with a running start, good handoffs.
Should be an interesting indoor season... and right about to get into the thick of it.
