So, today I blasted a 400m at nearly 100% effort. The time was ok considering my weight, but the way I felt was not. My training has not put me in shape to run that last 80m. I got a sickly feeling afterward, not just fatigue, but a rig up kinda sickly. No fun !!
A sunny 43º day on the Dean Hayes track, almost no wind. Good conditions.
800m warmup, stretches, drills
Puma Bolt spikes on
400m event run - 58.25 ~ (27/31)
200m - 28My 100m splits were about 13, 14, 15, 16. The time was somewhere between 58 and 58.5.
The meet is Sunday and there is supposed to be great weather tomorrow but then shitty afterward. I may go out tomorrow again and do a 4x400 tempo if I can get myself to endure the suffering. Depends on my level of soreness. Right now it's not too bad.
I don't know what to do on Sunday. Since I'm not feeling it in the 400 right now, tempted to just run the 55 and the 200. That would be so much more FUN. Suggestions? Should I puss out and fold on the 400? Should I risk a 55? I really think that I can blast a respectable 200m when fresh. But, I might be asking for trouble to blast a 55m race. I guess I can register for all of them and scratch. There is not much time between the 400 and 200. Just the 800m in between, an hour max. If I race the 400, I might as well forget a decent 200m time.
I'm leaning toward the 55 and 200. It's supposed to be fun. If I'm going to run the 55m, it would be good to do a power speed workout, and/or some starts with the team tomorrow if I can find them.
