  Hi, Hope everyone’s training is going well over this winter period! After having some thoughts and discussions with my dad (adviser) I’ve decided to update my training on this blog on a weekly basis. The main reason for this is to hopefully attract some people to the website and to show how my training is progressing towards the track season. Ill also include the extra supplementary …

10000 30:38.31 19 Birmingham Aviva Olympic Trials & UK Championships (22 Jun 12)

2012 Olympic 10,000m trials report-   Quality field! After looking at the start list I knew I would be in some good company when the field included the likes of Kenenisa Bekele and Gebre Gebremariam +  other great Ethiopian and Kenyan athletes (Bekele is the world record holder for 5 & 10,000m) I travelled up the morning of the race and tried to relax my legs as much as possible when I g…

5000 14:13.35 4th Watford BMC Grand Prix (9 Jun 12)

Back at Watford again! This time it was for a 5000m, after racing around 9days days ago my legs were perfectly recovered for a fast 5k. Before entering this race I wrote down a time of 13.58 which was rather ambitious seeing as my personal best time before going into this was 14.31...but what the heck I went for it! My plan was to start off easy at the back of the pack and run the race progres…

1500 3:52.91 3rd Watford Open Graded Meeting (30 May 12)

Speed work! So this was my first 1500m of the year at my favourite track! After putting down 3:52 on the entry paper I started to realise that I would be waiting a long time until my race came around…I ended up being race number 17! After being warmed up ridiculously early for the start of the race I had race plan of running around 63secs for each lap early on then try to see if I could p…

5000 14:34.39 2nd Chelmsford Essex County Championships (12 May 12)

This was my first 5000m of the year so I was hoping to run a good fast race early on in the season to see what shape I was in. I had a set plan in this 5k which was to go out hard and test my fitness. I ran the first mile in 4.31 (14min 5k pace) which felt surprisingly easy so I decided to stick to the plan of trying to run 4.30s for as long as I could and hopefully gain a gap on some of the ot…

Luzerner Stadtlauf Elite Men-28th April

Road race in Switzerland… YES PLEASE! I travelled to my friends flat in London where he lives during the racing season before I set off for my flight first thing Friday morning. My friend lives with some very good Kenyan and Ethiopian athletes that are staying in England while they are racing in Europe. The race that I was running was an 8.71km (approx.) road race in Lucerne which is app…

Watford open 3000m-18th April

My first track opener of the season! I have raced at Woodside stadium in Watford before and I always find that you can run fast on the track there mainly because of the fact it’s never usually too windy and the temperature always seems to be perfect! I had a time target in mind of anywhere between 8:15-8.30 for 3000m, this would be a new personal best time that I would be going for so I knew…
