Cotton Row Run 10K 2010

Great race!... the directors did a great job. I finished 127th with a time of 43:29. My effort was about what I did in 2005(43:11). I was happy with the time and I guess I have not lost to many steps. My goal for this summer/fall is a sub 20 5K. I seem to have gotten some of my speed back after sacrificing speed for longer distances this winter.

I am looking forward to some 5K races this summer.

Priceville Parks and Recreation 5K (5/22/2010)

This was a good race for me. I finished the 5K in 20:26 and put me within reach of a possible sub 20 5K.

I was a afraid my faster times were behind me and I could not get close to a sub 20. I will try to build on this during the summer. Maybe I will get that sub 20 5K.

McKay Hollow - Downhill Downfall

My run of McKay Hollow this year was disappointing. The directors did a great job with the race.
The disappointing thing is I was better prepared and yet I fell short of last year's pace. I had more trail mileage and more overall mileage than last year. I felt I was better prepared.

I had the conditioning and I did well on the uphill portions. It was the downhills where I lost ground.

I will have to do better on the downhills and will develop a routine to improve my downhill racing.

There is next year.
