Arrived at trusty Geasey Field around 3.45pm,had the track pretty much to myself which suited me just dandy.
Conditions were mild mid to low 40s brought and worn my Dublin knit hat but never needed my gloves,the beauty of being on and off the track in 75 mins when daylight still rules the roost.
Five lap warm up b4 switching into my flats,to quote Al Pachino in "Scent Of A Woman" I'm just getting warmed up......
Quickest mile to date at 5.20.14,didn't feel gassed or I'd "shit the bed" 4 seconds up on last week.....
Bollocks! gave back three seconds but took some solace from a 1.16 closing 400m
A second quicker than last week putting me at plus 2 at halfway after two weeks of 3.16s I,ve now gone:3.13.68-3.12.97-3.13.74-3.12.65 the last four weeks.....
Ok glass half empty 2 seconds slower than last week period which also negated my 2 second advantage overall,glass half full at 1.17/1.15/2.32 I ran almost even splits......hope for the boyo yet me thinks!
First off.......feckin ada where'd that 1.13 spring from??? however I was a second down on last week,sucks to run a 1.49 and be pissed......
Ok sports fans at minus 1 I needed 66 for the win,67 for the tie,68 for the loss and while not the 66.10 of two weeks ago it was good enough for the win.....I'd have celebrated more were I not flat on my back on the track having crossed the finish line and checked my watch........
Plus one for the week,plus seventeen from my December 4th opener,colour me very happy!
Of my six repeats here are my fastest individual splits
And for you "Data Fanatics" here's the last six weeks broken down"chapter & verse"
And there ye have it folks six weeks of hard work now onto phase two four races in four weeks,having sparred the shit out of the gym time to step into the ring where the only bell that tolls is the one to signal the final lap.......
