1500m PBs at Nuneaton open meet
Marcus Lovell, Mintu Sidhu, Harry Ward and Sophie Jacobs raced the 1500 metres at Nuneaton open meet on Sunday 4 July.
Here’s Marcus’s race report:
‘It felt great to be back on the start line again after such a long time. I was just looking forward to finally partaking in an actual race again. Overall, the race was successful: I took around 8 seconds off my 1500m PB, which is great. However, from the gun, I immediately got boxed in on the inside and had to check my run multiple times due to the pace at the front being much slower than I wanted. We went through the first 400 in 72 seconds. After that, I took to the front and injected the pace as that was way off what I was hoping for. After a couple of laps at the front with a better pace, I started struggling with 300 metres to go, but held on – and thankfully rescued what could have been a completely wasted race.’
Times were as follows:
Harry 4:20.25 – just outside his PB
Sophie 4:47.24 – a new PB!
Well done to all athletes!
