Comments: I am extremely happy with this meet, if for no other reason than my last 200 (24.18), lowering my pre meet indoor PB from 2 months ago by nearly a second. 24.18 indoors should be somewhere in the high 23's outdoors, So I am extremely excited right now. I thought I would be doing good to open with a time like that outdoors, but now breaking 24 first meet outdoors doesn't seem so unrealistic. I might even be able to work my way down to a 23.5, but we'll have to see. The 60's weren't great, very average, I didn't do a good job of running my own race.
Why did the 200 go so well? Well my main thought before the race was, don't worry about the other people, just run like you need to to yield the fastest time possible. This sounds very simple, however I have a tendency to get caught up in the actual racing, and as a result I often get very tense (This happened in the prelim). I was in lane 6, which was the furthest outside lane, so I only saw one person the whole race (the guy who beat me buy .01 seconds). It was beautiful. I was in that zone where you're going fast but it feels effortless. I can't wait for outdoors.:D
