1. Perceptions: Oh crap, reacted slowly, keep your posture good, damn, that guys’ fast – come on Norquist, run! I know I’m older than I was but I’m not old enough to run 12.x go go go. Shit. I need to lose weight. 🙂 That is my race in my mind 🙂
2. When I set PBs it was when I let myself really race. In instances where I set PBs (both in the old days, and then recently with old man PBs) – they were almost always where I just raced and tried to beat the other guy. Didn’t mean I got tight and ran as hard as possible, just got tall and tried to get to the line first.
3. My knee and arm drive are both much less pronounced than I imagine them/feel them to be.
4. I think we should feel the following: Arm Drive Push-Come up progressively – but don’t force drive phase, and step down hard.
Thanks for the response Matt,
I really like you response to what you felt when you set you pb’s.
