Rock Cut Trail Runs

Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Did a little warm up, drank water and took chocolate cliff shot.
Event warmup:

Did a little jog
  • 1h 15m 55s
  • 9.32 miles
  • 08m 09s  min/mile

Started out a bit too hard but gave a good effort all the way through.
What would you do differently?:

I need to get trail shoes. I wore YakTracks and they were just covered in mud. If felt like I was running with blocks full of mud on my shoes. The lightweight shoes I was running in also provided no ankle support. Both my ankles are sore due to all the turns the course had and not to mention the fact that my ankles rolled a good amount.

Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Ice, snow, YakTracks, winding trails, hills.

Event comments:

Rock cut trail series is a lot of fun. No one will be setting any records but it can really help to train for something like this during the cold winter months.

Performance: Average
Did not wear hr monitor.
Course: One loop through Rock Cut State Park. The track was very ice in some parts and very muddy in other parts. There was a rope you needed to take to get up a hill. Had to walk at some parts due to slope plus icey and muddy conditions.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Not enough
