event runs, negative split 400

Still hot in Murfreesboro, mid 80s at sunset and humid. I put the spikes on for some event runs, this time from blocks for the first time.
Hoka Clifton 2 trainers on 
400m warmup stretches, drills 
Puma spikes on 
2x blocks starts on the turn 
300m event run - 40.8 - (13.2, 13.2, 13.4)  
200m event run - 26 
Hoka Clifton 2 trainers on  
400m - 61 (31, 30)
The 300m event run didn't seem as fast as my previous one and the 200m seemed harder than it should have been.  Maybe because I was heavier today, 144.4 after workout.  I ate light today so should be lighter tomorrow.  This was an 'honest' event run, reacting to a beep timer from blocks, (as opposed to a 2 step-and-go).  I still think it could have been a 56 flat time if I brought it home in 15.

I rested a bit and ran a negatie split 400m in trainers.  That felt a bit better, but knowing the first 200m has got to be almost 5 seconds faster, is a bit daunting.  Anyway, more work to do.  Will see how it goes Sat.  I really do hate hand timed meets.
