A Lazy Ten
As part of my last preparation for the R4tK next Sunday, I aimed to do a low-key 10K race today. I chose the Sri Chinmoy event at the Yarra Boulevard. The post race pancakes was definitely my motivation. Giggles was working, and I didn't bother asking anyone else to come. I wasn't expecting a particularly fast race since I had a very heavy week of running leading into it. So I was surprised to be greeted by BigD when I arrived.
It turned out to be a perfect day for a race. Nice crisp, clear and sunny morning, a well organised event, and I ended up pulling out my best 10K time in over a year (38:37). Looks like I'm on track to go under 60min next Sunday.
Also managed to catch up with a few people I haven't seen in a while. This was BigD's first race this year, and of course he is more than pleased with the happy snap I got of him hurting over the last few 100 metres. Smile!
