So Far this Track Season has gone well.

My First race of the season was at the New Zealand Secondary Track and Field Champs Held on December 12th /13th. I ended up winning the senior boys 3000m in 8mins 19.54 and narrowly missed the New Zealand schools record of 8.18.53. After that I carried on with hard training and raced in the New Zealand 10000m champs held on the 5th January. I ended up finishing 2nd overall and running 30min 02. I was really happy with the time as it was my first ever 10000m. For the next few days after the 10000m I struggled to jog as my calf had taken a bit of a hammering so I did a bit of mountain biking and swimming to try and get them right. Two weeks after the 10000m I lined up in the NZ senior men 3000m champs. Nick Willis was also racing. I ended up finishing 3rd which was a good effort.

Right now training is going well. I have a 3000m race lined up this Saturday then after that I will have a few low key 1500m/800m races over the next few weeks. Then in March I will race in the international track meet, will race the 5000m and am hoping to qualify for world juniors. The standard is 14mins 15.
