Yesterday I ran the Summerfast 10k. This is a race around the Seawall here in Vancouver put on by the Vancouver Falcons Athletic Club. The race itself was good, but I stunk! My not-so-secret goal was to post a new PB and crack the 44-minute mark. But with the insane heat this weekend that was not likely to happen.
I felt great - really great - before the run. But then I forgot to take my obligatory pre-run gel (doh!) and also went out way too fast. That and the heat and whatnot and I only reached 48:36.
Oh well... next time will be better.
