After those races, I went to the larger training facility and put in a good brief workout.
Hoka trainers on
300m warmup, stretches, drills
3 x 100m at 400m race pace ~ 13
I got a good sweat going and I think it was good and necessary shake out. My feet were a bit sore from the workout and all the walking, happy to get in the jacuzzi after coming back here.
Peter from Germany, a major competitor in the 400m did not show for the 800m. I'm wondering if he'll also scratch the 400m. If so, it would help me, but I think he's here.
There are 63 competitors in my 200m event. I'm in heat 7 of 11 heats in the 200m. I have lane 6 which means, I won't see anyone. I like the outside lanes, 5 better than 6. 3 of my 4 competitors are slow (based on previous races), one is an unknown. I probably need to take it easy tomorrow and just win and not try to impress anyone with a fast time. My brief workout today reminded me of my aches and pains that come with the level of work I've been putting in. I think there'll be at least some scratches (no shows), like there was in the 60m. Whatever, we'll see how it goes tomorrow for my first race, the 200m prelim, 3pm Daegu time.
