I've started to formalise the idea of racing the Victorian Masters Track championships (MMAS1) and to try and give the competition a nudge for the sprint and kilo.

That's a bit of an ask, but Carl is giving me confidence that it's quite possible.

What I've come to realise is it goes against everything I've said about racing age categories to this point*. I stated (loudly) that I wouldn't race age categories while I was still getting faster. I'm still getting faster, or I bloody well better be or Carl and my legs are getting a stern talking to. I think to assuage the guilt I feel at breaking this standard, I will set a time goal for the Kilo and gauge my performance on that.

1 minute and 5 seconds. Why that number? Carl mentioned it once, and that saves me thinking about it.

* Ok ok so I raced Vets at a nationals round of the Aussie XC series.

D: 19.3km
