She Runs Windsor 10K Race Recap

我很高兴能和你们分享我的第一次10公里比赛回顾!当你第一次跑完一段距离时,你会得到一个PB,regardless of your time.我今天比赛的目标是在一小时内完成,and use it as a practice for my ‘We Own the Night' 10K in two weeks time.

我很幸运能得到我的比赛包,and a new pink bra from减震器.I already wear their bras for 必威官网running,纺纱,weights and bootcamps (ie,除了普拉提以外,我所有的运动!)I tried out the newRUN bra in a pink/purple combination.我喜欢那种大尺寸、颜色鲜艳的减震器胸罩。大胸罩通常只提供黑色或白色,so this pink was a great change!它也将是完美的我的生命5公里比赛在几个星期的时间。The RUN bra has two clips at the back,让你觉得自己被安全地绑在里面而不被挤压,没有弹跳!!

比赛在温莎大公园举行,随着世博会和开始/结束线的长途跋涉。超过2000名选手,there was a great turn out.我认为天气也有助于鼓励许多观众。我很高兴我的朋友们利亚and劳拉也在跑步。必威官网

There were plenty of loos ( a must at a race start),小型世博会在比赛日报名的同时,a couple of food stands and a goody bag pick up.Sadly the race tees weren't very long,and they'd run out of some of the sizes,so we all opted to run in our own tops.

我很高兴地发现,我们的围嘴数量/预测时间有畜栏,as well as pacers.因为我以前没有跑过10公里,我不确定短跑会有步行者。在安顿下来之后利亚畜栏,we got ready to race!!

第一公里很拥挤,and uphill.不理想。When my runkeeper informed me of our pace (I couldn't find my garmin 🙁!)10.40分钟英里,I knew that we were going to have to pick up the pace and lose the crowd.For my next race I am going to over-anticipate my pace so I don't have to dodge so many people!!

我们三个人一起跑了前2公里,检查以确保我们都在那里。我们跑过杰森,,利亚boyfriend,他给我们拍了一些很棒的照片…

上坡开始后,我们左转,快速的劳拉起飞,and利亚我以相当不错的速度跑了9分钟,必威betway想山丘在我们身后。Unfortunately,that was not the case.

“球场轮廓起伏,and when you reach the top of The Long Walk after having mastered that first hill you will be rewarded with spectacular scenery and sweeping views of the Royal Berkshire countryside all round.'source

当然是起伏不平的,山丘是另一种描述它的方式。他们一直来!The scenery was stunning though,我们向自己保证,每一个上坡的地方都必须下山。

利亚and I managed to keep 必威官网running whilst many around us were walking.我们在整个比赛中都超过了人,这真是令人鼓舞。

There were two water stations on the course,and by the second one we decided to walk through the water station.我讨厌用杯子而不是瓶子喝水,当我发现很难喝水和跑步时(我在第一站把杯子溅得满地都是),and you can't take it with you.As it was such a hot day,我希望赛事组织者在球场上再加一个水站,我认为人们正为缺水而苦苦挣扎。我在路上喝了一杯努恩酒,so didn't suffer too much with dehydration,虽然我真的希望我有一瓶水!!

这时城堡映入眼帘,我们知道只剩下一个上坡的地方了,最后一段路一直延伸到长途跋涉,我们继续前行。My thoughts throughout the race were that I wanted to be 必威官网running at an uncomfortable pace,我想全力以赴,把一切都留在球场上。With that in mind,with the finish line in sight,我真的加快了速度。

在最后一段时间里,我把一切都给了我,虽然不幸的是,长距离的步行很长,终点线看起来比原来要近得多!我一直在努力,我知道我想坚强地完成任务。

As I got closer to the finish line,我可以看到我们的目标是60分钟以下,时钟显示57.01,我的目标是以低于57.30的速度完成,然后冲刺进去。

我在56.54*官方时间内越界了,再幸福不过了。

I also managed to snap a pic of利亚越过终点线就在我身后-恭喜她在52秒内完成铅球!!

We all agreed it was the hilliest race we'd ever completed.我以前在温莎大公园跑过8公里,it was my first ever race 必威betwayabout 5 years ago.我没有受过任何训练,结果至少走了3到4次路。看到我现在变得越来越健康、越来越快,真是太不可思议了!She Runs Windsor is billed as good for beginners,but I think the hills can be really off putting.我们一致认为这是我们参加过的最紧张的比赛,而且可以肯定的是,将来我会避开任何具有丘陵地貌的球场!!

必威官网跑/走我的第一场比赛!!

比赛结束后,我们碰见了贝基,摆出姿势拍照TeamNaturalLyrun!We all finished in our goal times,我们为自己的奖牌而自豪!!

这个周末你参加比赛了吗?你过得怎么样?I've got another three 10K's in May,now I have a goal time to beat and I'm still chasing a sub 55min 10K!!!

    Well done on your PB!!!球场看起来真的很漂亮(如果也很丘陵的话)。我也不喜欢判断从哪里开始……你永远无法分辨你周围的人会变得多快!!
    这个周末我也参加了比赛——米尔顿·凯恩斯马拉松。虽然天气很热,但我最终对我的时间不太满意,but just glad that I made it round the course.到处都有人拉起或倒下!!
