-The point of this post-
Anyone know of running clubs in the northeast, specifically NY, that include sprinting (100/200)? All the clubs I ever see are all distance.
-The story behind, if you care-
So I realized the other day that I’m too old/not good enough to get playing time on my colleges football team. I’ve played football ever since 1st grade, minus 2 consecutive seasons I missed because of basic training and ACL Rehab. The work I was putting into training/studying just wasn’t going to justify the playing time I might get.
Lifting weights just to get huge isn’t enough for me, I need some type of competition. Bodybuilding has no appeal to me, strongman is a possibility. But I also ran track in high school and did fairly well. After doing some research I found a way to train full time for the Army track team for the next olympics. The way to get in is to run the Olympic B standard (10.2 for the 100/21.x for the 200 I think) and do it in competition. Hefty goals?? Of course, thats why I need others to push/get pushed by.
I did stay in pre-season long enough to test out so here are my numbers, let me know what you think.
40yd dash - 4.6s and 4.72s
Pro agility - 4.3s and 4.0s
300 yard shuttle - 55s and 57s
225 Bench Press - 17 Reps
Squat - 405x7
Power Clean - 225x7
(all were done on the same say, running in the morning and lifting in the evening)
Height - 5foot 9ish
weight - 195 Lb
