Test Track

Took it to the track today for some practice 400m. Looking to see if I can PR in the mile next month. Last year I was able to hit a 5:28 mile.

So today I got out an old whistle, stopwatch and my 11 year old coach. She sounded the whistle at 18 seconds, 36 seconds and 60 seconds. Two out of the four laps I cleared 200m in 36 seconds. The final corner heading into the headwind eliminated my chances of flat 70 seconds everytime.

In the end I logged 74, 80, 77 & 78 for a total of 5:09. Between each lap was a two minute jog.

Next week I will do a final practice then the first week of May put my feet to the test.
