Congratulation to Craig Davis, winner of the long-running speedygeese challenge to see who would be the first to go under 20 minutes for 5k for the first time. 19:58.49 tonight, and to think that two months ago his PB was 21:30!
Craig working hard. As always.
The other outstanding performance last night was Norma Wallett breaking the Australian W80 5000m record by a whopping 5 minutes. The national record was around 36:06, and Norma ran 31:11.58. Ewen would be too humble to mention it, but Ewen has been coaching Norma for many years. And be sure to regularly check out Norma's blog at http://www.luckylegs.blogspot.com.au/, in fact, subscribe to it like I do.
Ruth, and check Ruth's blog http://baussmann2.blogspot.com.au/ soon for more photos, probably.
I ran a 21:52.85, more than a minute better than recent runs. My km splits were ~4:20, 4:24, 4:21, 4:26, 4:20. The 3k split ~13:05, way faster than the last three weeks worth. I am recovering from injury much quicker than I imagined. Racing felt so much easier, too
My recovery run today (after an hour's circuit in the gym) was a 10k run that seemed to go on forever, particular the uphill parts. It's worth publishing the elevation map as well as the course map. Tomorrow, a longer run is scheduled, and it will be flat.
Yes, Charnwood to Mt Rogers and return.
