My first training after recovering from the worst lower back pain of my life, which lasted well over 10 days and kept me from training before the races.
Being behind the training schedule, I extended the route and included another major hill in the neighborhood to better prepare for the 15k race with 3,500 feet elevation gain in early November.
Despite the lack of training lately, my body felt strong. Didn’t really run out of breath or anything.
Felt especially stronger after the interval during which I had to pick up a letter from a post office. I was able to pace up and finished pretty strong.
My first race of this fall is coming up on Sat (9/21). It’s only 5k on the road. So, I’m aiming to finish it less than 30 mins... hopefully closer to 25 mins than 30. Will see how it goes.
