Speed day
Was about 49 when I got to the track at 8am. I was about to pack it up but i decided to go ahead and warm up. At about 930 it felt a lil warmer with the sun.

2x30 60,50,50,50 meters bs.
THe plan was to run 2x30 and 5x50 bs but we mis measured and ran a 60 on the first rep. I started feeling good after the 60. the 30s and the 60 were not fast because I was still cold. I didnt take my warmups off until the 50’s. Each 50 was under 6.0. between 5.7-5.9.
no plyos
WEight room
hang clean-4,3,3,3 135-185
Good Morning 6,6,6 185

had to hurry for a massage appt that I got screwed on.

whats a big drop the 100 or the 200?

Both, I was thinking 11.0-.1 and 23.2…

lol When I say I jogged that 200 I mean I jogged. I ran 22.5 at practice on wednesday. The 100 to tell you the truth I always open at about that, but I think im a lil faster know because of the gpp I had this season. But we will see.

That’s fine but did you jog because the 200 was easy (bolt style) or because you were tired?

I was tired before I even ran the 60. Just was a weird day. One of those days when it seems you cant get enough oxygen. I just didnt have it that day.

planned workout
3x10 3x20 bs
2x200 bs

I felt good during the 10s and 20s.
I ran the first 200 in 22.9. I didnt get into my relaxation like I wanted, but it felt easy. I was ready to put one down on the second rep. I made the mistake of talkin instead of putting my clothes back on. Next rep 15 mins later I caught a cramp in each calf on the curve coming out of the blocks. Damn I was ready to roll. The 200m fear is now gone. I tried to wait another 10 mins to try and run but I still felt the cramps.

Med ball
10x over head.

Weight room- only had time for cleans
pcleans-3,3,2,1,1,1 135,185,225,225,225,245

I wanted to do 3,3,2,2,2 but the damn bar I had was fuckin up my wrists. When I got to 225 I couldnt roll the bar. So I switched to a better bar. The 225 was cake. I went to 245 just see if I still had it. Im felling good. I have gone from 178 last week to 172 this morning. No loss of strength yet. Im getting there!

You should come to Houston for the Victor Lopez meet then we could hit the streets after the meet. Tha Block is Hott!

Let’s make it hotter. I got clearance for the meet today, the coach said it’s not a fast track.

What u gonna run? What times you plan to run?

What times I’m gonna run? I’m not god… Open up with 10.8-10.9 and 22.5-22.6. BTW, I’m going to be in a heavy training phase during this time period.

I know you not god thats why I said what times you plan to run. But judging by the level of comp at that meet you shoudld be able to get a good time in.

No, you asked what times I’m gonna run… Plan and gonna is slightly different… lol
