Not my best race for sure. I made a huge mistake from the
start. I didn't get a good starting position and was
immediately way off the lead pack from the start. I had
to use a lot of energy to try and get around slower runners.
I hit mile 1 in 5:50 much slower than anticipated and I
was already winded. I just struggled the rest of the way
to try and hold on. I did pass runners the entire run
and was not passed by anyone.
Time to rest up for my 50 mile ultra Saturday. I will do
very little this week I want to be as fresh as possible for
this race. It's going to be a tough one with my lack of long
runs and not doing any serious hill running.
35.75 miles for the week.
