As I am now searching for speedy feet, I’ve decided to race some 200 meter sprints to assist with that process. Below is my first 200m race in over 21 years; my time was 23.34 (video quality is poor considering the conditions, etc.).
I am in the outside lane:
I know I can run faster. First off, there was a 20 mph headwind as I was working the curve and when I started to round the bend into the straightaway a young girl happened to be in my lane which broke my focus as I needed to consider what to do.
My take away from this race are two things in particular. One, I need more block work thus a quicker start, and two, my fitness has room to improve as evident from my last 100m (maybe the distraction had something to do with it but I do know that my training has been sporadic without consistency). Nonetheless, learning from my races further improves my ability to discover myself through the medium of Track and Field.
Have a great day everybody!! 🙂
