Was thinking about training for BJJ European Championship in Feb22 but with the uncertainties in travel and such like, I thought I didn’t want to train for 10 weeks for a BJJ comp and not even be able to board the plane. Decided to sign up for a Masters track meet (1 mile race) in January and work towards a peak 2.4km instead.

2.4k Time Trial. 10:11. Best in a long time but disappointed not to break 10min. Went out too fast and struggled in 2nd half.
GTG: 8 pullups, 8 chinups

SUN: REST
EtOH: 1 unit

SUMMARY: I thought I had it in me to break 10 for 2.4km but I went out too fast (again). I will just have to become fit enough to outrun my lack of pace discipline if that makes sense. It was however the best effort of the year so I am overall pleased.
