I went to gym at 6:30pm, praying that it didn't close at 7pm (as it does on Saturdays):
Best 250m: 3:29
Best 100m: 1:15

Also did some upper body work upstairs.
Am going to train hard this week, especially hills and adding more running. Also have tests at university and must meet with the art designer at Xposure, as my Heartland stories are being readied for printing. Currently have 2 images on www.reporter.co.za.
