Don't listen to those who say, 'You're taking too big a chance.' Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today

Arkansas - Update

So this weekend I started my 2010 indoor season. I raced at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Arkansas. The school has a lot of history. Ironically early Friday morning I watched a documentary on their legendary coach. John McDonnell.

 I ran the 200m and the 400m.  I have never ran a 400 in my life so was a little nervous I won't lie.

23.77 in the 200m and 55.45 in the 400m.

Not a bad opener for me in the 200 I think. I have only started one season quicker. 

The 400 was very conservative if I do say so myself. I'm 100% sure I can go much much quicker.  Coach Reider who was with us this weekend said I was out their tempo running. lol.  (Thats the watered down version of what he actually said).  The question now is when and where will I be running another one less conservatively? : )

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I did get booty lock and dry mouth but hey it only lasted for a short while. I can honestly say I enjoyed the run.

So I'm  back in Atlanta now. Going to put in a couple days practice and then headed home to Europe for a couple races.

 Other results for the weekend
Ebonie PR'd with 53.06 in the 400
Dani ran 7.52 in the 60m and 8.22 in the 60m H
Walter opened his season with 16.99 for a world lead in the Triple Jumping
