Run race (Crater Rim) 2:47:59 [4] 27.4 km (6:08 / km) +1165m 5:03 / km
shoes: Merrell Allout Rush (#4)

Thought I'd give the Crater Rim race a try as the start was less than 10 minutes wander from my house and I am not very good at running races. Hot and brutal would be the best description. The plan was to head out slow and keep going and push it nearer the end. The pace for the first 10km felt really really good and like I wasn't pushing but yeah, to the kiwi took an hour so I must have been motoring. Tried to reign it back for the next section and started to feel like my legs were getting a bit empty not too long after the turnaround which wasn't great. Ended up having to walk a fair amount of the climb after the kiwi but tried to do it as briskly as possible. Legs were shattered. Lungs were fine. Then it was the most brutal descent ever. Rapaki sucks. And a stumble into the finish. Still pretty happy though. I feel like my legs just needed some more distance with a bit of speedwork in them, especially going downhill. 4th woman. Was 3rd at the turnaround but I knew I couldn't hold off the lady behind me as she looked like she'd smash the descents. I think she ended up only being 2 or 3 minutes ahead in the end though so not too bad.

Up the Harry Ell and down Latters Spur and all that jazz. Making sure just to cruise with a bit of faster stuff on Thompsons Track. Feeling SO much better this morning.

Quick little jog up the valley and back home again before the work function. Feeling a bit sluggish but turns out I was going fairly fast. M was awesome and picked me up from work on the tandem and dropped me as the start of the track <3

Out to Old Tai Tapu Rd from work to watch the TT. Was intending to cruise but then Nick Ross appeared next to me and was chatting away so I had to keep up with him which did made for a bit harder work than intended but company is nice.
