Run For The Money

Hmmm, not sure what to make of that. Main thing was that I won so Scott got $1,000 for Catawba Lands Conservancy. However my time which remarkably was exactly the same as last year was a little deflating. Having said that I did run the whole race solo and it was only in the third mile that I really pushed it. That third mile was a beast. A sharp rise right at the start of the mile and then a half mile drag up to the finish line at the end. Looking at my splits you can see the effort I had to put in for the third mile

0:53 (for 0.16m- again the course measured long)

All in all a satisfactory return to 'racing' but next week I'll need to run at least 40 seconds faster if I want to place well in the GP race. I think that is within reach

  1. Captain, good rust-buster. I would suspect 30-40 seconds faster next week won't be that big of a breakthrough... you had to start somewhere, and you're fitter at this point than last year, just not showing it time-wise just yet. First race back, give it time!
