Pre-race routine:

Late run for me. Got up, had breakfast, drank coffee, cleaned house, threw in a load of laundry, packed a bag for showering at the local gym after and then drove into town to pick up a friend on the way.
Event warmup:

We ran .8 miles from our car to the race start. Stretched a bit. Mentally was that we were "running for fun" rather than racing.
Run
  • 47m 24s
  • 6.2 miles

Comments:

I struggled after the 4 mile mark just from not being in speed shape!
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Was a good run for an early season event after being sick for several weeks. I will train harder, add speed back into my weekly routine and look forward to the next event!
Post race
Warm down:

NADA

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Did not do much speed work over the past 4-5 months. I deserved the time I finished in!

Event comments:

Well organized, good cause (Animal Rescue League of Iowa, very festive for St. Patty's Day. Would encourage a group to do this together for fun!

Thank you. I was a little disappointed but, like I said, you get out of races what
you put into the training. Hard winter here. ) I have some work to do but it's not
too bad for the first "run" of the season I guess. Appreciate the feedback!
