It was a late one last night, I didn't get back to my room until around midnight, so sorry for not getting the update in last night.
I spent the early part of the day yesterday downloading and listning to music, doing basically nothing at all.
I hit the track around 6pm and started my warm-up at 6:30. I got a great warm-up in too. Like I said earlier, the main focus for this race was to go out and start better than I did in the first round, which I clearly did, and work on getting the lead leg down faster from the first hurdle on down the track instead of getting in to a float stage like I did in the first round. I accomplished that goal as well.
I ran the fastest quarterfinal time, I posted 13.16, it was an easy run for me, I spent the time focusing on my cues that I mentioned earlier. I am feeling very good as well. We are getting a lot of recovery time for some odd reason, just one race per day for four straight days.
I am having an absolute ball out there. I love walking in to the stadium and hear the crowd cheering and the energy is so electric! I can't wait to get back there tonight. I am feeling very good and I am feeling very competent in my abilities to win the ultimate prize in our sport.
The semifinals are tonight at 9:30pm, I am in the second heat, lane 6. Startlists are posted HERE. I am not sure yet what our secondary focus for this round will be, I know what the main one will be, survive and advance to tomorrow's final.
