|Subject: ||RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.|
Thanks, Ron and Boingo!
Windy conditions up there in SLO, but it was a very satisfying day.
The 15 was split into two heats. I had a very clean start, getting good position around the first 200m. Sitting in 4th, the 400 split was 64. Leaders may have been at 63. There is a surge at 450, and I maintain contact with the second group while the lone surger breaks away. On the homestretch of the second lap, I surge up to the leader. At 800, the leader and I hit 208(64,64). I surge past him @ 850 cause I felt the pace slow down a bit. I come through the 1200 in 313(64). At this point, I said, "Ok...sub47 last 300 and you got it." I feel myself change gears on the back stretch, but that damn wind...and/or... my fitness...haha probably fitness...caused that "change of gears" to last maybe 50m. Two Cal Poly guys surged past me at 1275m(Leaf Barnes one of them)...and well...that was the end. 50second last 300m. I could not respond to the surge of the Cal Poly guys...good race fellas.
PR in the 800 :-D
... just second time getting under the 2min barrier. HA!! Man, i suck.
After breaking in on the back stretch, I took the lead. I pushed the first lap, but I slowed down a bit after seeing the clock @ 350. I came by in 58. My teammate surged past me at 500m, and I go with him(!!!F!!! Why didn't I do this in the 15??!!!) I surged past him @ 650 and took the lead. A Fresno St. runner out sprinted me for the win in the last 15m :(
My race @ USC(2weeks ago) was way different:
How is training going, Boingo and Ron??
