I have to be honest with myself if I want to take anything away from this race today: I was a pussy. I was a pussy off of the line and I was a pussy in the race. I didn't fight for a spot in the beginning of the race. Instead of focusing on what aspects of my race that I could control, I focused on the aspects of the race that I couldn't control. I became so focused on what I couldn't control that I tripped on the rail, hurting myself in the process. But I need to work on some things if I want to get better:
-I need to be more aggressive on the line, I need to go out in 30-31 and then settle.
-I need to get used to running on a banked track.
-I need to get used to running at night.
-I need to get focused on controlling what I can control and ignore what I cannot control.
-I need to get used to racing in big races.
If I do not admit these things to myself then I will never be able to work on them. And now that I have admitted them to myself I need to work on them. The perfect race for this is up at BU this weekend. All I need to do is have a healthy ankle and the opportunity to go there.
