Winding down from the Foote Field Open this past weekend where I did the 1500m and 800m events.
The goal of the weekend was rhythm, running a smooth effort over the full distances. I took the 1500m in stride on the Friday as my main goal was the 800m on the Saturday.
Overall I felt strength was on point but aerobic power in the 1500m and top speed in the 800m was not quite where I needed it to be or where I had planned on it being.
With that I mind I entered the 1500m at Nationals instead of the 800m, staying the course. No matter the event I decided, it will be a "tuck & roll" as it is Senior Nationals but I'm living the dream toeing the line.
On the training side I have been focusing on the short tempo runs with reduce strength work and keeping the intervals sharp but controlled.
