In April i ran my first Brooks 10km in Vitacura, it was hot, hot, hot.
Found myself at the starting line again I was nervous as I have not been doing any running. What a difference a month makes, we were looking for the sun today as it rather cool this morning rather than avoiding and huddling under trees or anything that would give a bit of shade.
Learnt the lesson from the last race and didn't start so far at the back, which made it much easier as I wasn't blocked for the first 3km. Off we went however when I pressed run, garmin decided to install software so for the first 400m had no Garmin as tried to switch off and restart.
After a few weeks off, lots of travelling i wasn't sure how today was going to go..but settle in and ran well managed 3pb - 5km 27.38, 1mile 8.31 and 10km I crossed the line at 56.20.
So having a break from running and exercise doesn't do any harm, not being so far back is better as it means you have a clear run and above all cooler temperatures helps.
Happy running folks.
