Waaaaahhhhh! That's all you need to know to understand my race and the rest of this post. All else is for historical internet noise purposes. ok, so this was my 3rd speed workout of the week, and I'm about 5-8 pounds overweight where I would like to be, and it was the first hot race of the season, sooooooooo, I ran a good 20 sec/mile slower than in Sept in the other 10k and about 10sec/mile slower than in a 10 miler in October. Long story short, I hate not being in shape!!! Whine. My big epiphany today was that it is way harder to run SLOWER when you are out of shape. And by that, I mean that I was running slower, and I was getting my ass kicked! I poured about 7 glasses of water over my head throughout the race. I dread to see the pictures of my pain ridden face, with my drenched head and body, which might even look as if I have pissed myself, but only at the right angle, which any decent photographer should have captured for me to take note of. Still happy to just be able to run at all and for the luxury of being able to do this stuff, so it's "all good".
