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.
