10 km Training Walk
Saturday 12 April - Great Forest Half MarathonThis was an off-road event over a gravel road that was undulating and very sandy in places. I had walked 69 km in the 7 days leading up to the race so my glutes were fatigued before I started. I was passed in the first 500 m by one male and one female. Their pace was faster than my planned pace so I let them go, hoping they may tire later in the race. I was happy in my result of 2:20:56, 3rd overall out of 135 finishers and 2nd woman on this challenging course. No Garmin data since I left it charging at work. Duh!
Thursday 10 April - 12 km Training Walk with 3 x 3 min at 10 km paceI found the hills difficult after quite a bit of walking already this week so the speed bursts didn't really happen.
