Seeing as though I haven't done a 3000m track race (7 1/2 laps around the track) in a while, I thought I would give it a shot.
I thought, 'hey, I do a 5k at the end of a bike and swim in the Triathlon, this will be easy!' Man was I wrong!
I felt good in the first 4 1/2 laps and when I realised that the other girls were drafting me the whole time, I felt that had to change that. I managed to pull away with around 100 metres lead when I crossed the line in 1st place!
I am now the Essex School's 3000m Champion!:)
