I've been AWOL for a little while but still training / racing hard - just very short of time.
But - I just saw NZC's name on the entry list for the Nationals and had to come and see the report! Congrats NZC - thats awesome. And I'll definitely be seeing you there.
As for my race - I had a bit of a shocker. 100m in and my shoelace came undone! I stopped at 500m, tied it, chased after the field and caught them - but never really recovered. I finished 5th in 20.18 - pretty respectable under the circumstances - but without that I reckon I'd have managed 3rd (only 10 secs ahead). Still - it was enough to be going to Christchurch!
Yesterday I ran a hard 21.1km training run (1hr45)
what: 12km easy
why: recovering - start of a big mileage week
last hard: yesterday
last rest: Thursday
Will go and have a proper read back now!
