You could tell the last 700 she went to the front to string it out as they were bunching up but once it sped back up she let a few pass her so she wouldn't have to lead the whole rest of the way I'm assuming. Whereas we usually see her stay right behind/with the lead pack and unleash her fury the last 300meters, I wonder if she saw the 3000m AR slipping away and wanted to encourage the pack to get back to it. 8:30 is phenomenal, just off her PR so early in the season. 6 all time? Is there anyone in US who is even close, perhaps Shelby Houlihan?
Jenny's on the startlist for Pre 1500. Certainly she is in sub 4 shape but it will be natural to talk about whether she will challenge the AR. If you remember last year, it really took her a lot more time to round into form throughout the season as she had a slower start. If anything , this is hopefully very promising of what is to come.
Thanks for the show as always, Jenny!
