Yesterday I opened up my season running the 800m at the Ryan Mccall invite which was hosted at the University of Tampa. It was a fun race!
I decided to temper myself off the gun as I usually go out hard and hold on for dear life. LOL But the 800m is a new beast for me at the level I am searching, so a prudent approach is warranted to gather what will work best for me in respects to race strategy. As you can see from the video I sat in the back cruising until about 500m where I had to run around two stragglers and then make a move inside as a hole opened up. From there my pace quickened and figured might as well start my kick with 250 to go. Ran out of real estate in the end running a personal record of 1:59.98. About time I got under 2 minutes!
Lots to improve upon. Time to get back to business, attain more fitness and prepare for the next race on the schedule. Faster times on the way!!
