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…

Home Countries International-18th March

I need to keep more consistent with these blog entries! Anyways, I was happy to be picked to run for England in the Home Countries XC International in Ireland. I thought my last cross country race would have been the inter counties in Birmingham but I was happy to run just one more cross country race this season. I won’t go into too much detail with this race because I was a little disappoin…

Inter Counties Championships- 10th March

The Inter counties cross country championships was my last planned XC race for the season so I was hoping to have a really good run! I travelled up to Birmingham on the morning of the race and relaxed at my cousins uni flat for a few hours before I had to make my way over to the course, luckily the weather the last few days leading up the race was good which made the ground firm on the course. …

South of England Cross Country Championships Brighton 15k

South of England Cross Country Championships Brighton 15kAfter having good results in my last few races I had only one tactic that was going to play a big part in how I was going to race the southerns which was to get high up into the top 3 places early on in the race.As the race was 15k over cross country I knew this kind of distance would suit me seeing as long term I am most probably suit…

Essex Cross Country Campionships

Essex Cross Country Championships 12k senior men’s- Gloucester ParkAfter having a pleasing run at Whitham I was hoping for another good run at the Essex XC champs, the distance of 12k wasn’t going to be too much of a problem so I thought I was in for a good chance of coming high up in the field. The course was 3 laps around Gloucester park incorporating some challenging hills and flat sec…
