Targeting your races clearly worked for you this time. You were hard done by but I'm excited to see what you'll do in the summer over the barriers.
I've come to similar thinking regarding doing too much. Balance is key, but it's difficult to overcome the 'hard work got me here therefore more is better' mind-set
You only have to look at someone like GG to see that sometimes a bit less is more, though having 15+ years training under your belt will make that easier!
Looking forward to seeing what both of you guys get up to this summer.
5km's - Podium 11th March and English 5km champs 27th April
10km's - Trafford 4th March + Salford 30th March
If you need a lift to podium or English 5km champs then no problem, others I'll be going from The Wirral.
