Change of Plans

We were supposed to have our first outdoor meet this past weekend but due to weather and scheduling problems it didn't happen.

Instead Saturday morning we had "practice" which really was a mini meet. The whole team was there and we ran several events for time.

I ran the 300m with Abby and Alison. Since it was raining we had to run it indoors which means that the times were slightly slower than they would have been if we ran outdoors. The last time I ran a 300m time trail was way back in November; I ran it in 50 seconds.

It is a fairly quick race but the 300m hurts! The last 100m I was trying to catch Alison because she was starting to slow down but I was slowing down too!

My time = 46.3 seconds
Alison = 45.9 seconds
(Speed demon Abby = 44.16 seconds)

We then did a 4x200m relay and it went well; my split was about 28.7 seconds.

Saturday night I watched the NCAA basketball tournament games and ended up falling asleep on the couch at 9:30pm. Obviously I am not a party animal! I had a pretty boring weekend! I looked at the weather for this coming Saturday and it looks like rain again so there possibly wont be a meet this weekend either : (

Speedy runs! Sorry about the weather. Hopefully it gets nicer.

It's really cool to see that how much you've shaved off your November trial. As I recall the 300 doesn't actually feel short while you're running it-- it feels so painful.

Weather can be such a downer!

Your Saturday evening sounded a lot like mine!

Great runs! Amazing that you've improved so much.

Somtimes, a quiet weekend with lots of sleep is the best thing!

Rain is not good for track meets or road races! I'm looking at the same forecast the next couple weekends. Aargghh. I hope my "practice" on the treadmill will go as well as yours did.
