At the tail end of 2012 I have had a number of pleasant happenings.
Unfortunately the weather has been rather wet and muddy so training has been restricted to Roller workouts or Cross rides so 'Tron' has been sitting idle.
Before the weather took a turn for the worst I participated in a Lochside Trail 5km Time Trial. Set up by Kelly Guest, he managed to get a rather large group of athletes out for the event. As it was early December I really had no idea what to expect and if asked I would have said my aim was to run standard. Sub 15.40. I started out and felt strong from the start. Mainly because of the downhill first km. I carried it through to the end. I surprised myself by running 15.07. Not bad this early in the season. My splits were 3min km's up until the final km which is uphill....
Then winter set in and along with the winter came the rain and mud and eventually SNOW!
This next weekend is the Prairie Inn Harrier 8km road run. I am excited, no expectations but sure to be a good field.
That is all for now,
Hope all is well,
Ciao for now,
