weights, thoughts on WMAC Perth

I'll be back in the weight room tonight for the first time in a while.  Don't want to do too much because I'm planning on stadium stairs tomorrow.  

Registration for World Championships closes in 3 days and there is a much smaller field than last year, but every bit as competitive.  Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there will be enough USA sprinters to field any M55 relay teams.  I may end up joining the M50 team if we have a relay at all.   So far, the WL M55 400 guy is there, plus the defending Silver medalist.  Seven in all so far have seeded themselves at 56.0 or better.  Of those, I think about 4 or 5 are legit.  In all, 40+ entrants in both the 200 and 400 representing Australia, Jamaica, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Chile, Finland, Slovakia, Mexico, Brazil, Sweden, Sri Lanka, Estonia, Columbia, Mauritius, Peru, Argentina, USA, and more... enough for 3 rounds of competition per event.   I expect there will be a few more entrants in the next few days.
