It was a case of lets try again, less busy than July but still 17 races for the 1500m and a race that started just before 10pm which is late. Weather was sticky and humid, but I had my witts about for not missing the start.
2 races up for the 3000m mine had 26 runners and ended up another scrappy race, I stayed too long at the back and ended up having to pass in the 3rd lane on a few occasions. My legs were lethargic but determined to improve on the previous months embarrassing time. 10:43 was slow for me considering I had lightened the training load. Think I will need to evaluate the 3000m as its a little short for me and the heavy mileage of ultras could also be a factor. Watford has a great track and also too busy and I race better in smaller numbers. Less disappointed than the last 3000m but know I have the ability to break the 10 minute barrier.
