Patrick Nispel

Monday 3.00pm Nudgee 16 X 400m - 120m jog recovery
Ave 71 secs - finished with 66;88

Awesome session!
Got wet from a shower during warm up but then it brightened up and though it was a sodden track , was great temp for working out. No real wind. Ran with spikes. Put my head down and ploughed through this session. Hot on the hills of yesterdays long run and last weeks high mileage I'd have forgiven myself for running 74's. Winter season and running like Summer !
I felt real strong and comfortable through out the session. Not the normal mental torture or anguish I experience in these long sessions. Going off this form it feels like another step up.
Next race Sunshine Coast CC at the weekend.
Watched 'I am Legend' last night = great film, I love that genre but Natalie doesn't.

Dave - great news about the seeded start. Should be a cracker this year and, given we are in Olympic year, hopefully we'll get an aussie winner for the first time in ages.
Based on recent results, you are now the firm favourite for both!

The Tanzanians plans this year are thwarted by Bridge to Brisbane moving to Sept 7th, so not so cheap to stay here for c2s, Noosa and then Bridge!
Your lack of taper belies your performance and was it not just the week before when you were extolling the best performance in recent era (NSWState CC)!,you remain Favourate
