Sunday’s High Noon 3000m
Katie 11:42, Ken 11:54.
Despite a strong wind, Katie's time was within one second of her pb. The splits tell the story: it was into the back straight wind 3 times in the second km; twice in the first and third: 3:51, 4:01, 3:50. And Ken gained 10 seconds (nearly) on Katie in the last lap, that tells me he will improve rapidly very soon.

My 21:20 was a struggle. I too blame the wind. I thought I rememberd Heidi crossing the line in 22:00? There seemed to be a random hand-out of place tags, so I might be correct. Whatever, it was a big pb for her.

My Plans this week: A 95km week including
Monday 3 Parliament House 4:30pm jog; 5:30pm aerobic intervals
Wednesday 5 12:15pm BBQ Stakes 6k
Thursday 6 Dickson 3:50pm long run; 5:30pm sprint training
Good luck to those competing in the City to Surf.
There seems to be no Canberra events this weekend. Who's for a very long run somewhere?
With 8 months to go, I start my marathon build-up today, and will continue to use mainly the BBQ Stakes to check progress, but I may still run a few track races if I feel like it.
