The track at Bellarmine during my high school days was 352 yards. It was built in 1912 for the University of the Pacific. The lovely 400m track now at Bellarmine is magnifiscent. Our dirt track flooded and on those days, we ran barefoot sloshing up the mud puddles. I recall running a 5:18 mile in the mud and rain at the end of cross country with Chris Yamasaki and Pete Dolan.
Our long days of track were sets of 200m, 300m or 400m on the track. Today is two sets of fast 400m repeats. Enjoy, and listen to your body.
