Purple Patch

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, June 13, 2015 with 2 comments
That's three weekends in a row when I have run well. Today was by far the best - a win in the M65s in the ACT 8k cross country championships. On paper a close race, but I took the lead at 3k and ran away from the opposition. The 5k split was 21:40 which is as fast as I have run on the road this year for 5k. And for the third week in succession, I have finished strong with a bit to spare. I don't know my final time, but it will be interesting to compare the time with past years, I suspect it's my best for many years.

How did I do it? I have been training well, I had one token rest day, Friday, and I set myself for a fast race, determined to win.

Now there is the rest of the weekend to celebrate, then back into training.


  1. Fantastic results Speedygeoff. So glad to see you back running well and really enjoying yourself! Keep up the excellent work :-)

  2. Well done Geoff - knew you were running well when you caught the fast starting Robbie so early. 35:24.5 so I'll give you 35:25 ;-)
