5 X 1000 /// Comments on last Fridays Indoor Meet
Went to Wooster Indoor Track to do the 5 X 1000 at 5 km pace. This is the true test if you are in shape. I'm not, so lots of work ahead to be semi ready for Lake Waramaug Ultras on April 20.
I ran a mile warm up, did the 1000's in the 4:30's and followed with a cool down mile. There was a 3 minute rest between the 1000's.
The Mt. Union College High School meet went OK last Friday. Had one girl place 4th in the 3200 and the boys 4X400 relay team placed 2nd, giving them a chance for the state meet. My boy 800 runner was 4th, however DQ for running in the wrong heat. Oh well, he had secured his ticket for the state meet at Kenyon College meet.
The 4x400 race was run around 12:30 am. What a long night. Got home around 2:30 am. Notice the parent on the edge of his seat during his son's race. I won't name names.
