Since I have not been doing much speed work I am not expecting a PR. Since I have run this race before I know there are a couple of hills and a pretty good uphill portion so mentally I will be ready when I get to them. My goals for the race include
- don't start out too fast (downhill start so easier said than done)
- stay focused in the middle miles and hills
- finish strong
- negative split
- give body time to recover after the race
There ya have it!
You can't tell from the picture but the shirt is NEON yellow. I rather kind of like it.
What is your 10k strategy? Any hints or tips are welcome!
