It felt ok. The 300m wasn't a killer. Still a slight amount of groin soreness from those first hard 150s in spikes on Sunday.
143.3 lbs after workout.
I'll be good to go for the meet. I wish I were more prepared for this meet and it wasn't my first of the season. It is the track of my masters 400m PR (55.11) that I ran 2 yrs ago here. Last year I ran 55.97. I'd be real happy to run that. My 200m last year sucked, 25.36 ... so I hope to improve on that. But my expectations are low since this is my first time out. My first time out last year I ran 25.46 / 57.36 (on a slower track).
Vanderbilt's 2 day format is rare in college meets. The 200m is Friday evening and the 400m Sat noon. Reminiscing about that day in Feb '15 I did all 3 sprints at Vandy... it was a good day... started with a 7.75 60m, then a 55.11 400m, then ... after sitting on a heat pad in the trainer's office, I went out and ran a 24.80 200m. I think I'd rather do meets like this, in one day.
Predictably, I'm the slowest 200m guy, and the second slowest 400m guy on the start list. I have lane 6 for the 200m, lane 5 for the 400m. Too bad it's not a banked track. I need to execute and not go out too fast like I did here last year.
