I competed in the Mount Joggers and Runners 10km event at Mount Maunganui on 3rd June. I was pleasantly suprised with my result as I was placed 7th in my age category. I was 15th female overall out of 299 females entered. My time was 48:10 minutes.
Originally I had planned for this to be my event where I found my feet again after not doing any events since my surgery. I have only been doing 3 x 20 minute cardio sessions per week on the treadmill, sometimes only 2 if I am naughty and miss a session! I know that I always get my "race day performance" and am able to do better in a race versus training, but it was a nice suprise to be ranked so near the top rather than the bottom.
This now means I do need to pick up the training in regards to my running and get some more longer run sessions into the week. I have my eyes set on doing a personal best in November for the Round the Bridges event in Hamilton.
