Conference race so I had to focus on it quite a bit. Going into it I was the 8th man on our team and they only take top 7 to State so I decided that no matter if I want to go or not I at least want to make it a good race.
Worked on pressing the entire time and staying just out of my comfort zone. This worked really well and made it so that I could hold the pace the entire time and not push it too hard. Looking at my GPS it became clear that you can see when I reminded myself to start pressing again and then forgot. Not a great kick, actually none at all, but I ran into the finish strong and won by 8 seconds :P
Key to strong racing in XC - lightly press the entire time, first mile just follow
Will come out with a video soon and put it on youtube. I think I'm on varsity now sooo that might mean another month and a bit of racing and training.
Happy with this race
