My mileage is down, my right IT band is jacked up and I didn’t train up for the race, so what did I expect?
To give it everything I had, which I most certainly did. I hit a max HR of 187 this time, compared to a 184 at my last 5k, which came at the most unfortunate place, mile 3 instead of 3.11. Without knowing that, just knowing I had slowed, the dry heaves came on as they often do to me in a short race, and I lost valuable time. I recovered slowly and somehow finished strong. Ate some black eyed peas and checked my dismal results. There was quite a turnout so quite a variation in my AG, from 20:34 to 42:04. I enjoyed chatting with a couple of people I knew, before and after the race, and I’ll get several points in the race series.
I’m a little scared about my half coming up in exactly a month.
