I did a 10km race yesterday. It went well. It was a hard course though. For those who know Ottawa at all, it was held at the Experimental Farm Arboritum. The route was half gravel, half pavement. And I'm not talking nice, hard packed gravel, it was loose and moved all around. I had tons of rocks in my shoes. Oh and did I mention there was a hill? A big hill? With a gravel path up it? That I had to run three times? So yeah, my hamstrings are killer today! Oh well. I think I will opt out of running tonight, maybe go for a bit of a walk instead (does shopping count as walking?).
On the bright side, I managed to cut about 15 seconds off my race time. Considering the course, that's pretty decent!
