That's pretty good for a Freshman though. I had tried out for Freshman BBall only to be told by the coach being 5'2" or 5'3" at the time was too short (he showed me I was the very last cut too). So I then decided to run indoor track, since it was a sport. I had no clue about anything in track so my times were not real good. Sophomore year, I got back into it and ran a 59-60 400, followed by a 57 400 last year.

I am not going to run in college though (never wanted to), but a lot of my team is. So I have a feeling they are trying a bit harder to get real good times to impress schools than I am. I also didn't really work out running wise before the season started, so that is showing a bit now too (it takes me a few weeks to get back into 100% running shape).


Yeah 61 is pretty good but we have a sophmore who last year as a freshman ran about 55-56 and a senior who last year broke the school record as a junior with a 49 something. I wasn't in very good running shape last year though, I'm hoping to get a 56-57 range this year. My 200 and 100 aren't very good though, I don't have a lot of pure speed, but I can go at a pace just under a sprint for 400 meters.


Yeah, our school is pretty good too I think. My coach said our school is better than 75% of the colleges. 8-o We have some sprinters and a couple distance guys that can run 50, 51, 52. A few more guys can run 54-55. Then, the rest of us (excluding Freshmen who started like me) will generally run under 60-62.

I can't run a 100, only run the 200 when needed, but I usually run 400 meters (spring and relays) or 600 meters (winter, where I got like 1:38, which is my personal best so far).


How big is your school? We don't even have a 600 m race.

Can't say I've ever run track or want to run track, but you've gotta tell your coach. If he still makes you run, it was his choice and you'll likely underperform...and it'll prove to him that you weren't fit to run.

Don't think track really is a sport where you suck little things up as in something like football, where it's in in a giant heap. In track, even the slighest twinge, especially in something as integral as the hamstrings, can decide a meet...especially since they are decided by mere seconds.

Things ended up going surprisingly smooth.

I saw the coach before practice, who was in a good mood today for some reason. He said he was wondering where my "off" times came from and I explained to him the hamstrings strain and that I did not mention it to him at the meet.

I have a feeling he knew I was a little hurt, since he didn't really show any surprised/curious reaction - it was like he knew it lol. Anyway, he said to lay off it today and see the trainer.

The trainer's diagnosis? It's a strain on both hammys, but it's not real serious. I just need to ice several times a day (I was doing it once a day for two days) and run lightly for the next two days, before returning to normal 100% on Thursday. ;-D


Sounds like everything went well, congrats. Those kinds of injuries are a B**ch. I strained both of my quads during double days for football and I couldn't get back to 100% for about a month since I kept playing on them.
