Nationals Update Number 2
Not bad for an oldie. lol
I won my 6th National 100m title this evening. The day started off early with me driving to Birmingham Airport to pick up my coach Loren Seagrave. He was in Rome last night with my training partners. Well done to DP on his long jump win and Durst and Travis in the 100m
It was great having 'Coach' there as he gave me points to focus on. As I said yesterday I have not seen him for some 6/7 weeks and it really did show. I don't think I would have been as successful today if he had not been there. His presence in the warm up was so calming. He made me believe in what I was doing just with little nods as I went through my drills.
This title means alot to me because I was so hurt last year. No the time is not a world beater. But, to be honest I don't care a win is a win. I executed my phase today and I have not done that in a long time. I hope to run my times for Berlin in the coming weeks before final selection. I have several races lined up where conditions will be good.
Needless to say I got called up for testing after my race. Its 11pm and I'm finally in the hotel getting ready for bed after have a quick bite to eat.
So on to the 200m tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it.
