The first, and likely only, inter-schools event for Robbie this year was held at Basingstoke and for a change, in good weather conditions.
With 1500m being the only middle distance event Robbie prepared himself, once again a very limited warm up time was available, and set his mind to winning the race. A race out front on his own was always likely, even if he took it steady, so with that in mind the aim of the day was to win, be dammed with the time.
As it happened, Robbie took a very steady approach to the race, finishing well in front in a time that was only half a second slower than his PB, though his PB dates back two years after his injury filled summer season last year.
So 1st place in 4:19.0 looking comfortable and feeling good, can’t ask for much more from him. Great run.
