Post race
Warm down:

walked around for about 10 min drank some water

What limited your ability to perform faster:

need to decide what distance im going to regulary do so i can get out the middle ground type training im doing now. i either need to do the oylimpic and train for that of train for all out speed with the spriny

Event comments:
