Race Recap

Yes.. I ran on saturday in the last leg of the Triple Crown of Running here in town. This was a 10 mile race. Last year, my time was around 1:45. So this year, I was just hoping to beat 1:40. My training hasn't been all that great lately. I mean, I continue to run 3 days a week but my strength training and other cross training could be better. I have picked up doing hot yoga on tuesdays which I think is really helping... I just love to sweat out all the bad stuff.
Anyway!!
My official race time for the 10 miler was...
wait for it..

1:33:07!!!!

I was SUPER pumped about this. I wasn't sure how I was going to do. This was the third race I basically ran by myself. I even had to go out and get myself an iPod shuffle the night before. My pace has definitely picked up this year.. I think it is due to not "over" running. But this course has some major hills right smack dab in the middle of the race, and I totally felt myself slowing down through these hills. And my feet were in some serious pain, but I kept trucking along, and PR'd by like 12 minutes!! Woot Woot.

The next race April 30.. and it's the 1/2 marathon. I just gotta keep my training up and hopefully get some more strength training in.
before the race... I'm nice and blurry!!

  1. Just saw you on SkinnyRunner. Couldn't believe it when I recognized the Derby mini shirt from last year. It's pretty exciting to find a blogger in the same city who enjoys races! Although your "slow" times are faster than me! I did the 10k and 10 miler and am doing the Derby as well. :)
