If you have been following my blog for the past few months, you will know that I am a Vancouver Sun Run clinic leader. After training for the past 13 weeks, today was the big day for myself and my clinic members!
Here is an abbreviated race report. To be honest, I viewed this more as an training run than a race, with my spring gaol race—the BMO Vancouver Marathon—only a week away.
Despite approaching the 2014 Vancouver Sun Run as a training run for the BMO Vancouver Marathon, I still managed to earn a new 10K PR! This demonstrates how training for longer races also helps with medium distances, given that I ran at about 75-80% effort. I didn’t want to push too hard today, with my marathon only a week away, so I treated this run as more of a tempo run. Now I’m tempted to sign up for another 10K to see if I can break 45 minutes 😉
