Today was officially a rest day so I played at tourists – visited Old Sacramento and took a tour of Governor Arnold’s State Capital building. A 20 min run to get the legs going before dinner – went barefoot around the uni and it felt good on the warm pavements/roads. Did 5 x 100 sprints on the grass.
Spent a large part of the evening in difficult communication with some Spanish-speaking athletes – very enjoyable – must put learning Spanish on my TTD list!
I have now definitely decided NOT to run the 10000m but to concentrate on getting through the 1500m heats on Wednesday instead – and having a blast at the final on Friday. Sean has already sent me instructions!
