I'm glad to hear he finished strong. I also heard in the interview that he said he was on pace. I would prefer to see a strong finish in a 3:58 than a dead last 200 and strugle home in 3:57. He has to get used to finishing quickly again.
That had to be his best race in over a year. A pretty good time with a strong finish. When was the last time he finished strong?
I think he should feel good about it. 3:58 is respectable and he obviously was running within himself to sprint like that at the end. If he is pointing to place at nationals and do well in July-Sept. It may infact be going according to plan.
O.T. that crazy about Freddie. But, thats capitalism. We'll soon see if he pans out with playing with the big boys - but the kid is very good!
