Another 3000m & 5000m – 2nd/8th July 2017

2nd July  – British Masters 3000m

Running in the area match the same race I ran last year and won comfortably despite having come straight from packing up my race. Another hot one and didn’t feel alert and having got sunburnt knew I may struggle.  A few stronger girls this time and had to settle for 3rd in a time of 10.40.  Along way for disappointment but needed points scored for the masters.


8th July  –  Southern Athletics League Battersea 5,000m

My biggest battle is the track again and going slightly longer where I already knew 3000m I was struggling.  I put my fighting spirit on and ensured that I just kept going to finish strong.  I always wanted to finish with 17 something but realistic with a relapse of Glandular, feeling very emotional that it was a case of focusing on my race.  I also didn’t want to be lapped and pushed myself round in 18:26.
