Now that I’ve had time to reflect on my Rio Olympic experience I’ll say that I have mixed emotions. I had incredibly high expectations leading in because my workout were faster than I had ever done in my whole career. Just nine days before my first round at the Olympics, while at the training camp in Guelph, I ran a 1000m time trial in 2:35.7 (the Canadian Record by Diane Cummins is 2:34.14) and 10 minutes later I ran a 300m in 41.4. Both those times were personal bests, but even more encouraging was that I recovered very quickly from the workout and was able to run another PB speed workout before heading to Rio. Although I hadn’t yet run PB races this season, I had gotten pretty close in May and June without peaking and basically had been doing workouts better than anything I’d done before London Olympics or ever in my 12+ elite running career.
