Athletics World Championships, Helsinki 2005
Well, it's now 22 years since the first World Championships (also in Helsinki) in 1983. Blimey - I'd have been waiting to go to St Bede's College to start my secondary education.
It strikes me as incredible that with all of our lottery funding & "expertise", that we haven't been able to field a world class middle distance track athlete for pretty much twenty years. Depressing. Or perhaps lottery funding is exactly the reason...
It's 3 weeks since I last went for a "good" run, apart from 3 minutes on grass on Sunday to see how my knees feel. Not bad, but could do with some more rest & ice.
