Starting a new thread for a brand new season! I will be competing unattached while attending Northern Illinois University. I will be trying to start a club there, I already have a few people that would like to compete with me, but we’ll see how that turns out.
My main problem is what meets I will be in and how will I be getting there… If i start the club they give us vans to ride so that would be good. The one meet I know I’m doing is the Tey Haydon Classic, which will be my opener.
800:2:03.9(leadoff leg 4×8)
My senior year is the first year I picked up the 400, I liked it and am looking to pursue it further this year. Last year I died badly in the later parts of the races. That will be my focus this year, if you look back at my log last year, I would take out my workouts way to fast and wouldn’t be able to finish them fast at all, which mirrored in my races.
Another point, I will be focusing a lot on weight room strength this year. Last year was my first year weight lifting at all and it seemed to help, A LOT. Now that I am coaching myself this year and have an open rec center, I will always have a chance to get in the weight room when I need to.
All that being said, I’m hoping for another consecutive season with great improvements. Constructive training should start monday(been working out a little the past 2-3 weeks).
Edit: Forgot to mention, I’m coaching myself as of now :/
