2014 Montalto's 11 km race
It was the first time I had ever run a 11 Km race. I have heard about 10, 12 and 15 Km races but not of 11 Km. Anyway, this morning I ran my third race of the year on a sunny Winter Sunday. The main part of the track was along the sea and through a particular oaks forest. I also ran about three kilometers up-hill through a strong cold wind that originates from North. On the contrary, while I was running down-hill the wind was behind me.
The time taken was 48 minutes and 31 seconds. I've learnt that the small investment of time I have been making in repeats workouts, tempo run and up-hill training has paid off today: I am really delighted with my average pace of 04:21 min./km. Good weather conditions and beautiful environs: perfect for running a race. I still feel relaxed completely.Nice week to everyone!
