Total Distance

Warmed up 2 miles, rolled out, did warmups and a few strides. I was really hoping for 5:20, thought for sure I’d break 5:30, and here we are. I came through 400 at 76 and relaxed through the 800 at 2:38 so I was on pace at that point, then I crashed and burned. I guess I’m just lacking the endurance and/or strength to keep up the pace. But I never gave up, I pushed myself and that’s all that matters. Aiden said that I went for it and that’s the first step. Maddy said that after a few races of pushing and working hard it’ll come and I will be able to hold it. It just takes time. The conversion for altitude/flat 200 meter track is 11 seconds so at sea level on a regular 400 meter track it would’ve been 5:28. So I guess that’s still decent. At least I’m heading in the right direction, last year at this meet I ran 5:45. And Jake said that after injury, you almost have to start over and set new personal bests post-injury. And I guess it’s my best college time. I should probably just let go of my high school times and focus on college and doing the best I can. And eventually it will come. I still have this year and two more years to cut my times down. I just have to be patient. 

All things considered, I’d say it was a successful meet. Sure I’m disappointed and it wasn’t what I wanted but I can learn from it and later this season I’ll be able to cut my time down.

Congrats on running a good race. I think it sounds like you did well, especially since it is your first race of the season.

I have never run a race on an indoor track so I don't know what it is like, but it appears to be more difficult because of the tighter turns and the crowding on the track.

I was really looking forward to running this indoor season. There are very few places here in Japan where we can run indoors, so there are only a couple of meets, but my achilles is not going to heal in time to run any of those meets.

Nice job, Sarah! I'll never be that fast again.
