Now that was refreshing! And not because I opted for shorts and a t-shirt in cooler than expected temps. Refreshing because 10K was a walk in the park compared to the memories that linger from ATB’s 30K.
I was really looking forward to running a 10K race and relishing in the ease of a shorter distance compared to what I had been clocking in long runs, leading up to ATB. This race was for pure fun with no serious expectation on hitting a certain time. I knew I would beat anything prior thanks to a flat and downhill route and was banking on finishing around 52:00. The last 10K race I ran was the Women’s Set the Pace in August, at 55:16 and I crushed that time with 50:36! I was all smiles post race and my recovery was a dream, I felt/feel so great!
I’m running the Sporting Life 10K in less than 3 weeks, I’m hoping I can clock a sub 50 this time, which I’m quite hopeful for. Let’s hope there aren’t crazy winds like there was on Sunday, although the cold temps may have given me that extra push to hit the next block of sunshine on the shadow covered streets.
Will keep you posted on how it goes!
