Short entry today as I’m off to the airport very shortly. Final day of the New York training camp today. My legs (and the rest of me) were (and are) very fatigued, so I opted for a medium paced negative split 10k, while Jamie planned on a steady hour. My 10k came in at a 1:49.7 split, but Jamie pushed on after I finished to go over 16.5k for the hour, hitting a 1:49.0 average by the end. A very impressive row to finish off my time here, and I hope Jamie is looking forward to a day off training tomorrow as much as I am. Well, I hope he’s planning to take a day off training anyway.
The first annual New York training camp has been great fun, and I think in training terms has been very beneficial for both myself and Jamie. Thanks to Jamie and Laurie for your hospitality, and hopefully I’ll be back here in February after Crash B’s!
