7am, cool 55F and misty. Moment of truth, had to do this TT even if mentally I wasn't quite there.
600m, running first 300 alone and then company to,bring it home. Went out very conservatively and came home stronger as follows:
1:03 (41, 22)-300m (steady but not pushing)
57 (39,18) (last 200 in 36)-300m (kept pace with Jim)
1:59.9 - not bad but not great but at least I finished faster and felt OK.
54.3 (36, 18). Was aiming for 56-57 and this one just flowed- didn't feel hard! 7R
150m (aim was sub 25 =32- 33sec 200) @90%
24.8 felt smooth
24.3 again felt smooth
So despite the mental block and running somewhat conservatively at the beginning (maybe not a bad thing to do post cold), got faster as the session went on and didn't feel spent.
Fog burned off to reveal another beautiful Fall day;70F
4 weeks yesterday until first race. Do I feel ready? No, but what the heck I am going to Perth for 2 main reasons, a) my Mum and b) trip down athletic memory lane.
