Hey guys sorry for not updating sooner. Guess most of you saw results. Overall meet didn’t go exactly as I planned but was still one hell of an experience. The only event I was really happy with was the LJ but considering the weather conditions, some events weren’t too shabby. Here’s kind of what happened event by event…
100m: popped straight up and rushed accel, top speed felt great 10.99
LJ: Pretty solid 24′
Shot: Super rainny and shitty, wasn’t getting across circle at all, barely broke 40′
HJ: Super rainny and felt so timid on approach. Would have benefited more from a 5 step approach..6’8″ish
400m: Raining even harder for this one. Got out hard…maybe too hard, lane 8, was dead on final stretch. Was the hardest 49 high I’ve ever ran.
110h: Decent race, slipped out of blocks, nailed 8 for 2nd race in a row, 14.6x
Disc: Was pouring for first 2 throws, couldn’t get a grip on disc, very tentative on all throws, fouled last one that felt decent.
PV: Felt great in warmups, blew through pole on first jump, switched for 2nd jump and didn’t have standards at right spot. 3rd one I cleared it then knocked it off with pole…sucked
Jav: Threw 46 mid…was a few inches off PR…into headwind with pouring rain still
1500m: started 15′ after they said we would. Ran the easiest 4:46 ever…Ashton breaks WR…holy shit
So nothing was really great but I still feel like it could have been a huge meet given different circumstances. My body didn’t feel awesome going into the meet and I’m not sure why. Was so awesome to be a part of that meet though and even though events were going somewhat shitty I kept my head up and kept trucking. Before the 1500 I was lined up with Ashton and he was nervous as shit. I gave him some good mental advice that my sister always harps on to me about living in the moment. After the race he was apparantly looking for me and then he thanked me before the victory lap because the advice seemed to work for him. It was a small moment but it was still pretty cool. Ashton is a super nice dude and what he did was amazing. It was shitty weather both days and it is scary to think what he could do with some big tail winds and sunny weather….92xx? Oh and his first LJ would have been enough to make the team…LOL.
