Excited to race tomorrow. I've had three solid weeks of training since the calf healed so it will be interesting to see how it goes tomorrow. Last year I was also returning from injury and ran 16:58 on this course. It's a tough one alright. The first couple of miles are fairly flat/slightly downhill but twisty and turny, then comes a really steep hill and the last half mile is a long drag uphill- I found my 'race report' from last year....
Race Splits 5.14/5.22/5,30/53 (long course)
Pace Per Kilometer 3:23.60
Overall Place 2nd
Age Place 1st
Comments WAKE UP CALL! actually it was a very tough course and next week should be a better indicator of where I'm at but certainly a long way to go!
Let's see what tomorrow brings....
