Been fighting a cold for days now, not too bad but noticeable.
Saucony trainers on
500m warmup, stretches, drills
2 x 400m w/ 90 sec rest - 65, 71
2 x 40mI ran the opposite way around and got a good pump in the hams. Monday night I did a brief weight workout and 2 reps of rowing machine - 500m at 1:50 w/ 3min rest. These hard 500m reps on the rowing machine are comparable to running a 600m.
Looking forward to the Vandy meet this weekend. Friday night - 200m, Saturday morning - 400m. I got outside lane (6) in the 200m, but lanes don't really matter on this excellent track because it is flat. There is only one much faster guy in my 200 heat so he'll be one to chase. In the 400m, I am the slowest by far. I have inside lane (2) and all the guys in my heat are 51-52 guys. This is actually good because I will remain behind the whole race and can run my own pace and not have to jostle for position. I doubt I can repeat the same times I ran last year, but I'm going to try like hell.
Looking forward to better weather...
