Before I ran Bryce I was going to run des news 10k but had not signed up for it. After I ran Bryce I didn't want to do the steep down hill that is in Des news. I really didn't plan on racing at all today, I had no babysitter so I thought it was out of the question. Then at 10 last night my sister said she would come over and sit in the morning. I would have like to have done Des news but they don't do same day reg. so I decided to do Speedy sp. 10k.
I really didn't know how I would feel I just thought I wanted a good tempo run. First 2 I was tired plus they are up hill, then the coarse goes through the SF river bottoms, which is a gradual down with some little rollers. I think the race went well, I felt better the further I went. Warmed up with Kent for 1.2 miles
1-7:09 slow start it starts on a norrow street and has some steep up hill.
3-6:33 Starting to feel better and passing lots of people
5-6:51 I always seem to struggle here in races but just want sub 7
6-6:45 regroup and focus for the finish.
Ran the course backward minus the first mile with Kent and his friend. Was dragging the whole way. Over all happy with the race, feel like it was alittle redeption from the 4th. Pr in this race:)
