Pre-race routine:

Chocolate chip bagel with PB. Coffee. Relaxed at home until 1/2 before 10k start. (50 minutes before 5k start)
  • 24m 52s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 58s  min/km

I wanted to go under 25 - so I made my goal. I'm very pleased with the run. I probably would have felt better if I had been doing more speedwork - but honestly this wasn't a key race for me.

Warm down:

Walking for about 5 mins then full stretch.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough speedwork. But this race wasn't what I was training for. If I was training for a 5k I would need more speedwork in my training. Since I'm looking at 1/2 Iron distance - we're not into speedwork yet...

Event comments:

The event was REALLY well organized and it was very friendly and fun! Unfortunately there were only awards for the 10k run - and it's not like I win races very often!!! I would have liked even for them to mention the winners of the 5k... Plus - one of my cross-country runners came in 3rd (she's in grade 6) and it would have been awesome to recognize her accomplishment!!!
