I made the trip out to Dangan to be greeted by cold, damp and quite breezy conditions on the track. I joined in with the university training group and after 5 laps slow warm-up and a few token strides it was time for some 800's off 90 seconds recovery.
I was consistently running 75 seconds for the first lap but couldn't lift the pace beyond that (no speed). The times aren't great but it's a start:
Not easy running by yourself on the track as the main group were doing a different session to me. In some respects I think I was simply going through the motions...
These track sessions make a huge difference to your running - I've been slacking off the last couple of months and I've lost a few seconds each lap as a result. Moral of the story is that you have to hurt yourself in training if you want to run well...
I finished off with a 3.9km warm-down. All up 12.3km for the day.
Judd played brilliantly to beat the Rocket. He's still my tip for the tournament.
