Heat – 2nd in 7.09
Got out ok, was runnin in lane next to 6.70 runner and he pulled away but eased off, felt myself putting ditance between the other boys and started shutting down at 40, looking round. Still traveeling fast but reckon i lost about 0.1 as i was still accelerating. In hindsight shouldve ran through the line and got a PB and sub 7 potentially but oh well. Also on the video i look like im a step behind winner (two frames of camera) but he was given 7.00 and i was given 7.09, the ones behind me were given 7.19 so was gutted as at the time i thougt i had ran a pb anyway of around 7.03 cos i was that close ot the winner.
Semi-final – 4th in 7.05
Got left in the blocks, video shows i was last to lave blocks. Looks like it couldve been a false start anyway, what with the winner running over a tenth faster than he did in the final …
Didnt make final which was a bummer. Indoors havent gone too well, but im 2 tenths quicker than i was at this comp last year (my pb from 2009 of 7.08 came in late March) so maybe i am doign better than i think. If i wanted to maybe I’d run 6.9x in march and i’d be where i wanted to be …
I’m in a growth spurt at the moment. Grew an inch recently so thats going to hinder my performance at the moment. Anyone got any tips on how to maximise my growth spurt? Looking forward to outdoors now!
