Sunday Day of Rest…Well Kind of!Posted: October 16, 2011
5am: Coffee + some Light Stretches + psyching myself up for my race
6:15am: Leave Home
7am: Register and begin Warming Up for 8k Race
8am: Well my race started a little after…races never start on time!
A little while later I finally make it towards the finishing line (thanks to my mum for snapping this for me).
I managed to nab 1st place for the Female’s! It was a small field of runners so they don’t break it up into age groups. We were all lumped in together. Very flat course, no shade but it was around the bay so the view was awesome.
The stress fracture in my left foot gave me a lot of trouble towards the end of the race. I was in excruciating pain for the rest of the day. Even though I was given the all clear to run…I probably should have given this race a miss.
I spent the rest of the day with my leg propped up ice on and off, catching up on blogs and watching TV. I foresee several physio appointments this week!
Now I’m spending my Sunday evening downloading songs off itunes and making adjustments to my workout plan for the week 🙂
Just from reading some of your blogs I know there are a few of you who are racing this weekend. So Good Luck! (If you’ve already raced I’m sure you did great).
Hope Your All Enjoying What’s Left Of The Weekend 🙂
