Relax A Little

Yes I am there under the mask before the race

Last week, I started my Base training but I also had a race. Sounds crazy but doing a holiday race can be fun. I was so happy to see my friends after a long time because of Covid and being sick this summer. It felt normal as it can be. Many dress festive which made the kids feel like it was normal. Being so relaxed, I had a great run and placed 2nd in my age group. I know I can run faster for that distance but that was not the goal. As athletes, we put a lot of stress on ourselves to perform at every race. There are 3 types of races: A race is the big goal race; B race is the test race to see where your are at with the training; C race is a speed workout like a tempo run. Don’t try to do race each weekend because that can lead to injury. Next time you race smile, try to relax and have fun. Be safe and healthy! @pamhouck
