I do have a video of a run I did at the U23 Champs where I ran a 21.47, I’m just uploading that to YouTube and then I’ll post up a link.
But no I don’t do the 400m at all really, that was the first proper 400m I’ve done in 3 or 4 year. I’ve done the odd 4x400m relay but I’ve never really had to try that hard because the rest of the team are so bad. haha
And you could be right Pete, maybe I am looking at the wrong end of my race. Perhaps I’m a Michael Johnson not a Usain Bolt?
The reason I say it’s my start is that I can run against a guy who does 10.7 over 100m and lose to him. But then I’ll run against the same guy in the 200m, have the same gap over the first 100m, but then I’ll catch back up and overtake him during the last 100m. So my logic tells me I need to improve the slower past of my race, not make the fastest bit faster.
But at the end of the day I’ll do whatever needs to be done to bring the 200m time down, even if that does mean a few longer runs.
