Daily Note

2 up, 3K race @YSU, 4 down. Race went pretty meh to be honest, not awful for a first one, but definitely need some more training under my belt. Time was 10:15, good enough for 3rd place. Started out strong and on pace for the first 3 laps or so, but could feel the fatigue hitting me hard after the mile mark. From there disappointed myself by not being in it much mentally, and let the race get away from me. Managed to maintain decent form and had a strong-ish last lap, but those middle ones really need work. Happy to have the first race out of the way to shake away the cobwebs, now gotta work on that leg speed and endurance and some better mental toughness for next weekend. (Also need to get the heel situation fixed before it gets worse- felt it some during and a lot after the race...)
