I just got a text from coach saying he wants everyone to run at least 5 events at the next dual meet on Tuesday so I chose the 100, 200, 400, 800, 300 hurdles, 3200, long jump and triple jump. Thats gonna be a fun meet Laughing


lmao, what?

That wouldn't even be allowed here. Have fun.

Its a dual meet so our coach is gonna use it as practice. Unfortunately I tore my groin a couple years back so I cant do hurdles or high jump Mad

Also, this weekend was pretty successful. PR'd in the TJ with a 40-05, PR'd in the 800 with a 2:00 (tactical race, split 60-60 for the win) and split a 47.6 off first leg in the 4x400. What would that 4x400 split convert to in the open 4?

Ran my first sub 50 of my career today, PR'd in the prelims yesterday with a 50.44 and came back today in the finals with a new PR of 49.42, placed second. Next meet is in 2 weeks, going for 49.0 .

I feel your pain, for 3 years I've been stuck at the 2:01, this year was the first time I went 2:00.58, but I think breaking 2 is more mental than physical, because my 400 PR indicates that I should be running at least 1 55

I ran my first 10k yesterday, 35:08.

Brutal race. I think I can drop that time just with experience, but holy crap.

Anyone else notice a high school graduate made it to the semis of the mens 400 ? Props to Aldrich Bailey . There were also 3 high school girls in the womens 800m field, IIRC only Ajee Wilson made it out of the first round .

Paralympic athletes shouldn't run in the Olympics.
