This thread inspired me to google my track captain - and he has his own website. here's some of the times I found:



400: 49 seconds (1st)

Mile: 4:24 (1st) (school record)

800: 1:57 (1st)





So yeah. We have a pretty great team overall. Fastest 100 runner time 10.1 (I think), high jump 6' 2", great sprinters for 400 and hurdles, and pretty good throwers (I think, I don't normally see them).



Oh, and compared to the other towns we've competed against, I've deduced we also have the best-looking team. :thumbup:




godly. this gets me thinking though- where i could view my school records? :<img src=:' />

If it's anything like my school, it might be on their website (assuming it has one).

Just did the hardest track practice of the year today.





4 x 500, with 3 minute rests. 63 seconds at the quarter, then pick up the last 100.



4 x 150, 28 seconds each with a slow 150 jog in between.





I totally hit a wall. :wall:

Did an easy 3 miles today at practice. It was really slow, but I felt pretty good so I'm happy since I usually die.

i had my first legit workout with the sprinters yesterday.

in this order: 200, 400, 600, 200.

the 200's were supposed to be < 30

the 400 was supposed to be < 70

the 600 was supposed to just work on our form

i beleive we had a 60 second break in between each



being a distance runner, my lungs felt like they were going to explode.

my hip is getting bad now, so after districts on saturday im done with running for two weeks, minimum.

i jogged a mile today :ugeek:

This is on his personal site, I'm not sure if you can find school records.

You probably could :thumbup:



I can't run for more than a minute without getting extreme pain in my knees and ankles.




Do stretches to work on that, particularly lunges (I think - don't trust me too much). Don't overwork yourself, and look into better shoes if you want to seriously run. I had knee pain, but I got new shoes and now it's mostly gone. Only stress is during lunges and deep stretches like that on my knees.



Jeez reading all of this is so depressing. I barely ever run anywhere. Only time I ever ran a mile took me about 8/9 minutes... that was last summer at school -.-




That means there's plenty of room for improvement :thumbup:

Is that for sprinting :shock: ? We did a 12 x 400 workout in distance because our meet was cancelled. My goal time (based on my PR mile) was 92 seconds - kept hitting an avg. of 85 (more proof of how much better I am at practices)



Woo, track meet today! Broke my 1600 PR!!! :D

Congrats, I also broke my PR on Thursday \<img src=/' /> From 6:14 to 6:04 :<img src=:' /> Sub 6 next week, is my goal.

Big meet tomorrow, last time I run the mile this year, so going to try and break 5:00 (I only need to shave a second off each lap). Last time, my 400 splits were 72, 75, 80, and 78, so I really need to work on keeping it up my third lap.



My coach lent me some sweet [bleep]es today :P

Lol running... I run out of breathe way too fast, but I am quite a fast sprinter. So yeah, I have the cardiovascular endurance of an obese man and the speed of a black man. :)

On tuesday I got my PR(!) I finally got sub 2:30 (my goal for the season), and that was in the 4X8 relay at League!



I was happy, we came in 5th and actually that was the only even we placed in for that day. Sad isn't it? :thumbsup:

Then on thursday we did the 800 run... that was a disaster. I ran a 2:33... stupid people running in my lane :wall:



Oh well, hopefully I get better by soccer season \<img src=/' />

I run on my own, mostly so I'm not winded for lacrosse, basketball, soccer and mixed martial arts, I usually run on my road and not on the track or anything, always listening to my iPod.
