Around the Bay 30k: Week 11, Day 6
It took a little extra to warm up the legs today-the first km was tough. But once they were moving I felt pretty good. Better than I thought I would feel anyway. By around 10km my legs were moving pretty good. Heavy, but loose.
Around 11-12km in, I closed in on a guy and way about to pass him at easy pace, nothing new. But when I caught him he picked it up. So I tucked in behind him and pushed us to about :30/km faster than I was already running. I figured he wanted to race! I stuck with him for about 800m before he started slowing and I toasted him.
If you’re going to ego-speed up so people wont pass you, you better be able to keep that pace. Ya, Im competitive.
I got some sunburn on my nose. Maybe it’s windburn. W/e, it’s red.
