Here's how my race went:
Any of you who follow me knows by now that I pretty much do ALL of my running activities with the most awesome running buddy ever Sheri so of course we did this together. One for All and All for One right?!?!?!? We choose Sunday to do our race, the only kicker with that is that we had to do our long run that same day as well (8mi) so we decided to break it up do 5 out our normal hilly route then complete our 5k on a little easier route;) We are also trying to focus on slowing down on our long runs so this helped knowing that after we do 5 slower miles we are going to speed it up for 3 more. Our 5 was perfect then we stopped at our cars to regroup for the 5k, you know get "race ready"! The best part about everything was the SUN was SHINING it was about 37* with a breeze every now and then. At times I was burning up then the next minute I was chilled. I took my favorite Pineapple Roctane GU and off we went, I was trying to go way too fast and very soon realized I needed to slow it down! We did a simple out and back, with the second half having a nice little down hill right in the middle and the end of the route~sweet!! My finish time was 27:54!
What's the best thing to do after a race?
