The blog was just for the WMA games so is no longer being updated but I hope some people will find my thoughts and experiences interesting and perhaps helpful in preparation for their own races.
One regret is that I wasn’t drug tested at the games – I regularly get emails and comments suggesting something other than training, technique, diet, experience etc is the reason I have been improving and performing so well.

And here is some of the 5000m race, 2 days after the Cross Country – I ran a slow (82/83 sec laps) race behind the Columbian until 4.5 laps to go and then accelerated to 74 seconds per lap and it turned out to be an easy win by 25 seconds.
