“… rather than just throwing out 3:50 15 weeks before the race.”
That’s exacty what I was doing. I’ve been a bit lax the last 6 weeks and just started back up. This is the 1st Winter I’ll trained through in some time. I think I could have qualified last year if I’d not been focusing on the half training. Building on last two years and combined with an early start this year I can’t wait to get a crack at some races!
