After another solid week at training it was so nice to compete today at Mt Smart. With the variable weather conditions that we have had in Auckland of late, the rain played its part and stayed away for the afternoon! I started off with the 100m hurdles where I equalled my pb (Sydney Feb, 2010) of 13.92. Unfortunately the wind (+2.2) was over the legal amount of +2.0 meters per second but it is nice to back running fast. Onto the long jump where I recorded 6.01m. I'm happy with this distance as my best ever season opener but there is plenty more there. I threw the javelin but was a bit flat after the other events. It was great to kick start my run in to my first heptathlon (February 4/5). Still lots of work to do but it's fantastic to be back out there competing :)
Great support crew at track 3 of the year - Celia, Janie, Me, Rachie, KT and Conrad. Thanks guys!
