Note: As a reference my last 10km road race was completed in 37 minutes which converts to 5:57 minute pace and my max pace hit would be in my last 800m event in 2:19 which converts to 4:40 pace.
In terms of Master Track Nationals the scheduling didn't quite work out and spent a little more time at the beach taking in the views but I am looking forward to XC Nationals in November and the start of the Nordic ski season.
