Race at lee valley
Warmed up ok felt good
Slight delay in the blokes but I drove well and came up into my running. Then calf cramped at 60-70m and then started to slow and run flat footed to the line.
As I crossed the line I got a time which was 12.03, with I was surprised about, had I not pulled up I think I would have definately managed 11.7
Not sure how bad it is until tomorrow…

While the wife is at church I went to the track and had a Great session
I aim to do at least one competitive 400m each year, and today is the day…
Drove hard out of blocks and worked down the back straight. Clear 2nd at 200m and then legs went so lost a bit of momentum. Push hard down home straight but legs like lead.
Overall happy with the race 1.4 secs quicker than last year and achieve the target of sub 58 secs.
First 100m of 2014
A slight wind on a cold evening
Ran 11.9 so happy start to the season
Today’s session: 1/7/14
5mins touch rugby
I enjoyed the session tonight I I joined in with the rugby clubs 1st pre season session and it went well. Aswell as training I was also helping to coach the fitness elements of the session. And demonstrating ladder drills.
Diagonals consist of approximately (120,100,120,100) which is made up of;
Run hard diagonally across the pitch corner to corner walk jog across the pitch to the next corner run hard the length of the pitch walk jog across the pitch to the next corner and then run hard diagonally to the next corner walk jog to the next corner and run hard the length of the pitch.
I’m impressed with my fitness, it was a good session for me as I annoy able to run fast at the moment.
Jog walk to cool down
Decided to go long tonight as the hammie’s did not like the fast stuff just yet.
Was aiming for 3x200m but I was ruined after the second run and decided to call it a night… Checked the distance app after the session and the run was 312m up a slight incline. Which explains why I was so knackered.
