2013 Azalea 10k Race
Monday, March 25, 2013
Time to do another 10k, WOOHOO! I am really not used to running for an hr yet. With my knee issues and all, I have been protecting them a lot this year by purchasing new running shoes, no hard jumping up and down, and most definitely no sideways movement. During my Insanity workouts, I have had to modify or not do the exercise at all. There hasn't been that much though. Starting off the new year with Ultimate Reset and the following that up with Insanity, both have helped a lot. I did get a couple practice runs in before race day and that really helps. Of course my goal was to place in the top 3 of my age group. Unfortunately, I placed 11th which is good. Besides trying to finish in the top 3, my next goal was to learn how to pace myself where I am not exhausted at the end. It makes feel a lot better when I have enough energy right at the end to sprint the last 100 yards. I was able to meet that goal. That made me feel good.
