Last days

Had Valedictory Monday night so I couldn't train, did an easy run of around 9.6km with Mahoney who has joined the squad which is good to hear. 

So Monday night was another large one, so took Tuesday morning off. 

Wednesday was training, and I trained well. Definitely felt like I was hitting old form. The session was 200, 220, 240, 260, 280, 300 with a progressively decreasing jog recovery to take us back to the 400 start. That was 1 set and we did two sets. 

Feeling great throughout the whole thing, even had something left for a quality last 300m so things are going swimmingly. Then Thursday was an easy run of 8km and Friday was an easy run of 9km to make up for Tuesday. 

This morning was hills but because of the Shield meet today, it wasn't a large turnout. Again, felt magic, didn't go out too hard because there's nothing worse than blowing up on hills. First 4 went by really quick and I was just behind Tarli Bird, who loves marathons. 

Even the recoveries were looking strong. Times went like this: 

1:11, 1:13, 1:13, 1:13, 1:12, 1:12, 1:12, 1:10

Stoked, but it's the Ferny killer and hill killer combination tomorrow so hopefully I make it home alive. Good luck to Sammy Toll who I believe is attempting to break that 8:50 barrier to qualify for the Zatopek 3km. Here's some photos of the last week.
