Race - Qld Athletics Cross Country Champs - Maleny
Distance - 3km
Time - 11.21
Place - 9th U/14 Years Boys
It was a hard hot race yesterday at Maleny, a very strong field racing on a tough hilly course. I was happy with how I ran and my lead up to the race. It was great to get a solid out on the course that I will be racing on in a few weeks’ time, at the National Cross Country championships.
It is a very hilly course which was extremely tough on the legs; I had lead most of the race and was feeling comfortable on every section of the course, unfortunately with about 600m to go in the race my calves really tightened up which effected the rest of the race, but still extremely happy to finish with a 9th place.
Nutrition for the race was perfect thanks to CLIF Bar Australia, which kept me going, and the Mizuno running shoes did the job of keeping me light and fast.
My next race will be the Rainbow Beach Triathlon this Saturday / Sunday
