I ran at a meet in Loughborough university. I was a guest in the a race. I was in lane 2 (my lack of pervious 200m's didnt give me any credibility for a good lane) I found it super tight and had to work really hard to stay with the girls around the bend. Then I ran great off the bend and was pretty much leading until the last bit. The lactic hit me and I slowed a lot. I really think with one done I would run it much better the next time. The race was won by Laura Turner in 23.48.
I'm really happy that I did it but I just want to do it again. Let me back out there!!! I'm dying to do another one. I swear I've got more in these little legs.
It was so much fun to take on a completely different challenge and if I gave it time I think I could do well at the 200m. But alas the hurdles are my baby and everything has to be geared for them. The plan now is to do a couple of 100m races (maybe another 2 if possible) before I start to race over hurdles. Get the speed up and that should help the hurdles.
On a side note Kelly Propor ran a p.b in the b race in 23.68. So well done to her (obviously jealous that her time is faster!) I like to see the PROP doing well.
Flew home this evening and am tucked up in bed.
Sleeping tablet taken, blog done, sleepy time zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
