Pre-race routine:

ate some oatmeal and drank some water stretched and did a light jog for 100 yards
Event warmup:

5 minutes of stretching and a light jog for about 2 minutes
  • 28m 50s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 46s  min/km

it was a good time for me- i started a little slow- but paseed people on the uphill portions. I need to get used to running in the heat
What would you do differently?:

I could have eaten better last night- I just need to train more to get faster- otherwise it is my best official 5 k time and i still felt good at the end
Post race
Warm down:

walked around block, stretched for 2 minutes and had a bagel, some water, half banana , gatorade

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I am just carruing too much weight still- i think i could have done it a few seconds faster if i would concentrate on my pace, which is tough to do in a race. I just need to keep working hard and change the areas where i do my routine so i can master the hills

Event comments:

good, well organized and fun event- cant wait to do the 8k next year
