RRR report from CANADA

Stillwood Camp 10k

9 May 09

Racing a 10k a week after a marathon is probably not the best move but Dave's recovery was going particularly well and was basically talked into this one.  A 10am start and the weather was sunny with a slight wind. 

The idea of  getting a sub 40 quickly dashed when hit by a very steep off-road hill on exiting the camp site.  On struggling to the top it was back onto level tarmac and was relieved his road shoes were the right choice.  At the 8k point Dave was in the lead but he overshot the turnaround point and immediately found himself in 2nd place and had no hope of clawing back the lead with tired legs.  But never mind, he still took 1st place in his age category.
