I know my times scream out that I’m looking at goals I can’t achieve, but I’m not going to turn away from what I’m trying to do. Is the goal times enough to make any noise at nats? I know that my goals are unrealistic, so please don’t look at that point. I just want to know if I should run with the elite group if I am able to accomplish these goals. I’m a high school junior by the way and these are goals for this current year.
If you’ve a very young training age, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if you were able to drop 3-4 tenths off of your times, but as is. 10.7 and 22.1 are pretty impressive for a highschool athlete. I say if you have “amazing” improvement for 2 years straight you’ll be running at outdoor nationals.
To answer your question. THese are times will make noise at nats.
But lets see how close you can come. How tall, wt, what type of training, why the hand times, what was the wind.
FYI I ran a 38.0 in the 300H, probably could have dropped to a 37.5 or so,if I went to a national meet, but not only did it not work out as planned, I swtiched to the 100M. I was a bit short for hurdles.
So you should focus on where you can achieve the best result.
The wind on the hand times were actually slightly against me during the meet, so the times are legit. I’m going to be at my first meet a week from Saturday, and I hope to get at least 6.35. How important is it to get a big start to the track season indoor?
