Nicely done Scott! Sounds like you had a good plan and stuck to it. Feels good to go sub 19 eh?

As for your 2k, I wouldn't be surprised if you go sub 7:10 on your next test.

Thanks Tom. Yeah it feels pretty good. I paced it specifically because I knew if I didn't I'd blow out at the start like so many people including me usually do.

Forgot to mention, that puts me 3rd on C2 rankings for 14 year olds this year, and second for last year's. Also exactly in the 75th percentile for 13-18 years. Not meaning to brag B)

Managed to knock 70 secs off my previous verified PB for a HM this morning so it's now 1:18:40 at an average rate of 1:51.8 and HR between 145-160. It was a bit random on splits at times as I couldn't decide if I was going to stick it out or not. In the end stubbornness won and I kept it fairly consistent. I didn't have much left to give at the end so I'll be really surprised if I can get it sub 77 mins.

Annoyingly I lost about 20 seconds as my shoelaces worked loose so I had to stop to tie them so there's a chance I can get low 78 mins

Photo on Instagram or on my logbook. Currently ranked 10th out of 491 with one of those above me, unverified.

Another 250m PR this time 34.8 sec (1:09.6 @47spm)- continuing to get steadily faster as I approach 12 months on an all meat diet- 50 years old was good and I expect 51 to be even better!

Well done Stu! 21k at 1:51.8 are you mad?

Great strength work @Shawn Baker!

Another PB coming in hot! This time 30r20. Was meant to be in the club but I was snowed in, so decided to do it at home!

30:00 7512m @1:59.8 r20
05:00 1245m @2:00.4 r20
10:00 1246m @2:00.3 r20
15:00 1250m @2:00.0 r20
20:00 1251m @1:59.9 r20
25:00 1256m @1:59.4 r20
30:00 1265m @1:58.5 r20

Have to admit I surprised myself here. I set the pace boat up to 2:00.8/500m! 7500m was the target for the end of the year not the end of November! I do like this negative splits malarky though even though I didn't plan to negative split this at all! Just felt good so I kept it pushing down! Would rank this but they don't do 30r20s. Oh well I am very very happy with this.

Great going Scott. Now that you believe in yourself the illusion of boundaries are melting away. Great to see that this was done away from the club too.

It won't be much longer and you'll be doing HMs at that pace. It's a tough one but it's a different kind of tough compared to the lower distances, and it's a good long term target for you to aim for
