Having had few days off and then no race I went to the track today to do a session. Was windy, as seems to be standard at the moment, so did 12*300 off 60 secs. target was 49s. They came out 45,47,46,46,47,46,47,47,48,48,49,47. Lifted my mood some.
Christleton 5k tonight. Lightning fast course so was well rested and gunning for a pb. Left 2 hrs 25mins before the start so I would get a good car park space. It's only 40m from work. hit major traffic on m56 and a sign up saying major delays to j15 and gave a eta to the junction so was clear I wasn't going to make it on time. Using the twins Tom & Tom I recalculated a journey getting off at the next junction. new eta gave me an hour before the start. A mile in and stuck in traffic. I moved 3 miles in 50 mins. At race start time I was in gridlock 5m outside of christleton. At which time i asks the toms to guide me home.
Great start to the season, rubbish 1500, awful 3000 and a DNS tonight. I must be due a change of fortune now
