So this was my first 1500m of the year at my favourite
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 aroundâ€¦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…
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…
Road race in Switzerlandâ€¦ 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…
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 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…
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.
Chichester 10k road race- Feb 5thI
love this race!The Chichester 10k is the road race
early in the year that I suggest everyone to do if you’re looking for
great atmosphere and fast course.After a good
performance two years ago and an average performance at Chichester last
year I was determined to get the time I have been after for a while
now.As usual for big races I stayed overnight the …
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
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…
