Thank you to everyone for your kind and encouraging words and advice for my time trial.
Yesterday was a pretty rough day at work for me - my company laid off all the temp workers as well as a lot of technicians. One guy was practically fired right in front of me and this was a wake up call that "real life" is hard! So I was just in shock all day at work and hoped that running at track would make me feel better.
I ended up running the 600m and the 300m but it didn't turn out as well as I wanted. I decided this was the best way to go for me cause there is a possibility that I could run the 800m and 400m in a meet. The bad part was that I was the only girl running the 600m so I had no pacer and went out too fast. Then I had to run the 300m alone again cause all the other girls had run it right after I finished my first race.
600m - 2 minutes flat
300m - 50 seconds
I realized as I was running the 300m that I hadn't been warmed up enough prior to racing and that messed me up big time. The only good thing that came out of this is that theoretically I know I can run the 400m in a good time. I know I still have a lot of training to do and improvement to make.
I maxed out on bench press - one rep at 100 lbs (previous I did two reps at 90 lbs for my max two weeks ago) so I can see some slight improvement there but the next few weeks I need to keep lifting and not slack off even though it will be the holidays.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!!
