It is something that happened and which I had no control over
It will be a 'loaded' field and a very tough race, but I'm believing in myself
My head and my heart are really keen to race, but my body just keeps telling me I haven't done the work.
Also I could make a late decision whether to take part, although I stress at the moment, running there isn't on the cards.
It was a great and important race to win coming after Helsinki and setting a personal best also gave me plenty of satisfaction
So when you put the kick in and the other runners go past you, it's game over!
Deciding on when to kick is crucial and depends on how the race is unfolding.
If it's a slow race you have to be on your guard. You have to be patient, but I prefer that.
Stepping up a gear during any race is not an easy thing to do.
I could produce spurts of speed and after taking up athletics I found myself running quite quickly over 400m.
It is a natural gift I was born with but it's something I've had to nurture in training.
