Last of the Winter/Spring series at the track

Had a good day at the track and field meet today.  Entered 6 events.  They were:

100m, 200m, 400m, long jump, discus and shot put.  Despite a stiff headwind in the 100 and 200m, I ran 13.52 (0.12 over PB) in the 100m and 27.29 (0.18 over PB) in the 200m.  Missed out on a PB in the 400m, despite conditions being conducive to it, and having run faster in training.  My time was 1:03.60.

In the field events, I was a bit rusty in the long jump, having to adjust my run up.  I haven’t training this for 6 months in any case.  Similarly, discus and shot put are extra events, more for fun and to expose myself to new movements, which will only help in the long run.

Stay tuned for videos.
