Taper Time (Buddy Run)

When: July 17, 2011
Distance: 10k
Training: 10km recovery after 28km tempo

After reaching my peak of 45kms last week, my next thing in mind was to recover actively. Decreasing my mileage would be one, decreasing the intensity and especially to relax my tiring mind as well.

Day before Buddy Run Race
Big lunch meal at Alexandre and a refreshing tea at Serenitea in the afternoon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Team Meeting at Serenitea. Lol.

Race! Rolly VS Daves

Pre race training
I was up really early. I started running at 1:30am and wanted to finish it below my long tempo pace(5:45). This time it wasn’t raining not compared last week when I did my 45kms under the heavy rains. Those time, it somehow helped me finished my training run strong. For now’s training at around 18kms, I managed to maintain my pace of 5:45 but I felt the humidity and made me breathe hardly. After 2hours and 45mins, my garmin told me to stop with 28kmsย at my watch. That gave me an average pace of 5:53, It was not my target time but I think that would do. :p

Race Time
I have an hour to cool myself down. I did some stretching, hydrated a lot, changed into Alpha mode and meet with the Alpha’s.
