wicket drillsI was surprised to run a 61 in this small circle. Minus 2 seconds for what it would have been outside. I was going to follow up with 2 x 300m, but after one 300m, my L foot and R hip were taking a beating. So, I had to stop. The 300m was hard and a good pump. Still feeling those squats I did on Sunday.
I've been wanting to get some wickets for form drills, but didn't want to spend $50-60 for a dozen, so I made my own from PVC. It was easy. I'll go back tomorrow night for a light workout, wickets and maybe some blocks. No turns.... running those turns is hard on the body.
Really pissed.... for the first time ever, I drew the dreaded lane one at the meet this Saturday at the Crossplex. Terrible on that track! Huge disadvantage, and... I'm not even in the slowest heat. I don't understand why I'm not in the slowest heat, there are guys in that heat faster than me. Bummer. Lane one has to run the entire turn with no bank, compared to the higher lanes which run half the turn and start by running downhill. Definitely harder on the feet. Usually, they don't even use lane one for the 400/200, but they are in this meet. Shit! Oh well, I ran 56.66 from lane 2 last time. Lane 5 is choice on that track. Maybe I can ask to move to a different lane if someone scratches, but I doubt it. I'm haunted by the time I DQ'd false started from lane 5 in a 200m 2 yrs ago. There are some elites and Olympians at this meet. Calvin Smith and Kyle Clemons are in heat 1.
My new wickets....
