On Sunday the 18th of May I competed in the county championships. I came 5th in the county in the U15 girls 1500 metres and considering there were Years 8 and 9 racing (and I am a Year 8) I think I did quite well. However, only one Year 9 came above me and she won! I didn't get a PB (5:11 as opposed to 5:03) and my coach and I agreed we need to work on my start as it was too fast - and the girl who won gradually made her way up to the front throughout the course of the race. So a fast start helps, but only if you can carry it on all the way through!
Then I missed a training session at our usual training place on Monday, so I did the session at school at our school athletics club. It was 2x(4x(200 metres then a 90 second rest)) with a 3 minute recovery in between each set of 4. I felt good but because our school track is a 200 metres grass track with a slight hill on it and so it is harder, physically and psychologically.
And today I have been out for a steady/tempo 3 mile run. I felt really good today, especially as the course was hilly. I got 4:20 average kilometre time, which is good for that!
