My training had been spotty considering I was/still am coming back from my ankle injury which is BTW is taking way longer than expected.
|Week 1 and 2 look good, then injury, then you can see my mileage per week is pathetic considering I was going to be doing 9.3 on Saturday and 13.1 on Sunday|
The 10k race would be the only race that I knew I could really try at considering it was a distance I could do and no one would be running it with me...so I decided to put on my music and just do what I could.
I felt pretty good during the whole thing, except mile 4-5 which was against the wind. I like the 10k because there aren't a ton of people like the half and the 5k. The "hills" are really the bridges with the exception of one and it's not bad. My ankle felt decent- just would hurt a bit on the hills. Finished in 51:31 and got 12th in my AG! WOOT!

Overall, my ankle felt decent- I was worried that it would be really sore after the 10k considering usually after my runs is when it is the sorest. I think the compression socks help but also mentally just focusing on the races and not worrying about my ankle helped.
|2 races down, 1 big one to go!|
|Compression and carb loading for the next race!|
