Thanks a lot, I’m pretty happy with the way I performed.
Combs: 2:15 (someone spiked him and it pulled off his shoe in the first 200)
Springer:2:10.x (66,64 splits)
This race was HILARIOUS. First of all Combs loses his shoe on the second turn and kicks it off, only to have it hit some kid behind him. Then I get the baton in 7th place and cruise to a 66 first 400 passing 1 team, cruise the next 200 again. Then I come onto my last lap and am rounding the first curve when I honestly think to myself “What am I doing?” I go into an all out sprint and pass 4 more kids in the last 150. It was like they were standing still.
Coach said that I ran a 27 on that last lap.
Didn’t feel too good on this run. First 200 I was passing a team on the curve only to have this guy run up from behind, push me into lane 3 and split between me and the man I was passing. Totally threw me off focus, but no excuses. Didn’t get out fast enough, again.
Good things today: Finished strong and negative split a decent 800. Learned I race better when relaxed, instead of trying to pump myself up.
I am ahead of last years times by 6 seconds in the 800 and 2 in the 400.
Bad things today: Did not get out hard in the 400. NUTRITION. I need to pack a meal for long meets like this. All I had was granola bars and nutrigrain to last me 6 hours after my first race.
