Confident Conrad all ready to race in France
- Updated: June 4, 2013
National 3000-metre steeplechaser Nolene Conrad ran the first race proper of her European tour in Belgium at the weekend but reckons there’s unfinished business coming up, writes Mark Etheridge.
Young Conrad used her first race in Rehlingen, Germany last month as a pace-making exercise to see how her form was looking and dropped out at the 1200m mark.
The weekend saw her running at the Flanders Cup in Oordegem but Conrad wasn’t happy afterwards.
“It didn’t go so well. I finished fourth in 10min 18sec which is a season’s best but the race was just horrible. Temperatures were at five degrees Celcius when I ran at 9.25pm. I couldn’t feel my legs plus my technique was off as well.
“But I’m running again Thursday, so we hope it goes better. Athletes are always hard on themselves so definitely yes, I can’t wait to race again.”
The meeting in question will be staged in Montbeliard, France.
