Early session as got work stuff all day and evening.
WU then drills on killing fields before track opened at 7.30 then went to track and all of Meadowbank was closed.
Did it on killing fields instead. Bit slippy in flats with the dew. Then also there was a crazy dog on some of the later reps.
Felt tired but okay. I wanted to get an idea of how fast I could do a 1500 today. Yet not possible in these conditions so gonna have to wing it a bit on Saturday.

SUB 15 attempt #2. SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!
Scottish uni track champs. Last year I lapped everyone in the field and was hoping for some competition as it was a bit closer to Edinburgh/Stirling.
Legs felt fairly tired after JK and Thursday and then the races kept getting delayed and we ended up running about 70min behind schedule but 5 hours after breakfast and spent a lot of time chilling about doing bits of warming up but think I managed well.
Spoke to the people in the start. Realised it was going to be a lonely race. Set off out the front and ran solo the whole way. Conditions could be stiller but after all the Meadowbank training I couldn't complain.
I went for our training philosophy of start with a 69 then run to get to a 72 average. Splits taken by my wonderful assistant from the 200m point.
So on track for the first 2k but was hurting a bit then could see it dropping but tried to give it more to at least get a PB. I knew I needed a 66 last lap. Had Liam and another guy (2nd and 3rd in race) to chase in the back straight as I lapped them and then he shouted at me as I gave it my all on the run in. Was expecting to cross in like 15:02 but saw it tick 14:59 then stop at 14:59:78. Could not have been happier.
Hopefully go quicker or have found a new taper regime.

Took about 10min then jog to start of sprint. Aim was to be very tired as that is when I make mistakes.

2 Sprint trainings and my tactic worked perfectly. My legs were tired and heavy and slow but my head was really struggling. I think dehydration playing it' part. So worked very hard to concentrate and in general did okay.
