we had great weather for the scardale races this morning! not the mini-heat wave that kicked off the weekend Saturday. it cooled off enough that the occasional breeze brought a chill with it. i had planned on running he 15k, but at the last minute dropped down to the 4 miler. that was mainly a consequence of having done 10 miles yesterday and didn't feel up to pushing it for 9+ miles today.
the 4 miler was the perfect distance because i pushed enough to get in a solid workout. the 28:40, 7:10 pace was tough. i don't think i could have pushed it under 28 because of the hill climb at the mid-way point. still, i was very happy with the outcome - it was good enough for 2nd place in my age group :
i'll add link to the results once they're up on the scarsdale rec department website.
