Pre-race routine:

Woke up at about 6:15am(start was at 8am) had a bowl of oatmeal w/ a banana and a cup of green tea. Drove down to the race to pickup my race package.
Event warmup:

Jogged a couple of blocks with some friends, then went to use the washroom with about 10 mins before the start.
  • 41m 41s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m 10s  min/km

Awesome run as I set my PB by 2 minutes. I felt good the whole way despite being sick for most of the previous week. even though my km splits were somewhat erratic, I felt it had more to do with the terrain then with any change of effort. All in all a very enjoyable day in the sun.
What would you do differently?:

Not too much, If anything I would try and pick up my pace at around the 7th km instead of the 8th km and push a little harder over the last 3 km.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked along the inner harbour watching the opther finishers and then had a good stretch and some fruits and juice from the race sponsors

What limited your ability to perform faster:

More speedwork, although I am not dissapointed at all in my effort

Event comments:

Great race again, I have done this event 4 out of the last 5 years and it is good every year.

So YOU were one of those guys that whizzed past as I was panting and puffing at the 3km point.

Nice job on the pb. It was a gorgeous day, eh?
