This morning Amanda ran the race of her life so far, a brilliant 800m to pass Katie and Kathy Southgate down the home straight and win the ACT women's 800m championship. Both Amanda and Katie ran lifetime pbs.
800m times - 3 races, which included the following speedygeese:
Geoff S 2:26.60
My 3000m was slower than I expected, I was still sore from Thursday and didn't judge the pace too well this time. Great backing up by Katie to run so well only an hour after the 800.
3000m times - 1 race, including:
me 11:47.27 splits 4:00, 3:49, 3:58
It was quite a poor turn-out considering the weather was perfect for running fast times in distance races. I never know why the word "championship" deters people, but it does. "Championship" races are often the perfect opportunity for runners to improve their times. And the training sessions I conduct are geared towards everyone doing well in them, so in theory anyway we reach them in top form. Maybe next time you'd join in too?
