Missed tempo session
Woden, ACT. Still night. Had been a little rain earlier in the afternoon so the track was not completely dry.

60m. 7.35 (+0.4). NEW Australian record. This run felt really good. Starting to feel more power in acceleration.
Rest / travelling. Watched Almost Famous the previous night so I loaded a playlist with The Who, Jimmy Hendrix and Led Zeppelin.
Melbourne, Lakeside. Nice daySunny and mid-high 20s. Wind fluctuating.
200m. 23.45 (-1.3). Again struggled in acceleration but finished the race ok.
Melbourne, Lakeside. Another nice day weather wise.
100m. 11.58 (+0.9). Perfect start first go but they stopped the race. No false start given. 2nd was very quick on set-go. I was not fully in set.
400m. Did not run.
60m. 7.40 (-0.5). 5 hour gap after the 100. Feeling fatigue in the legs before the run so I was really happy with the result.
