My own progress is dull in comparison but I'm getting there just waiting for a break / good race.

I am currently on 4.06 for the 1500 but this was after a very optomistic 62s lap.
3000 at 8.57 solo effort on a very windy day
800 at 2.02 wasn't ready at the time hoping to give it another go early August my 1500 time is suggesting I have a good chance.
5000 bit of a disappointing 15.44 after dying back from the first K.

All in all mediocre but still believe I've lots to give between now and base so watch this space. Starts with a mile open tomorrow if I'm near 4.20 that would be very encouraging

Thanks for the kind words Alex. Yes Im surprising myself with how good shape im in right now. Ive put in some cracking sessions.

Good running for you too. 4:06 is solid. How has the training been? How did the mile go?

Yes Im going to Watford on Wednesday. What time will you put down? Reckon youre in sub 4 min shape? Im gunning for 4:10 so youll probably be in a faster race. Will be great to chat to you...

Got something to say?
