Happy Sunday everyone ! How was your day ? My had two competitions. First competition of the day…. My 5 K race this morning. My city organizes one of the first races of the season for my region and there is always a good show. There are several children’s races, a 5K and a 15K. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I signed up too late for an official bib, but decided to run it anyway (and there were lots of people in my case !)
The day was perfect. Cold (around 40 degrees) but sunny. I didn’t sleep that well, and was up early, fueling up on protein pancakes. A friend was doing the 15K so came to our place after picking up her bib, to warm up before the race.
The race started at 10 a.m. so I left the house at 9:45 a.m., the start literally 2 minutes from my house. Here is everyone starting to show up and line up. It was a great day for a run, I was feeling good despite the lack of sleep, and there were not too many people.
I was quite satisfied with my performance.
When I got to the finish line, the 15K was getting ready to start. Wow, lots more people !
After that I quickly came home, showered, made a quick lunch and off I went with my husband and daughter to her gymnastics competition. We spent a good part of the afternoon at the gym. In her group there were 5 teams, and her team came in first. Yeah ! Overall she did well, she was pleased with her performance, as was I. As always.
All in all it was a great day – full of (healthy) competition ! How was your Sunday ? Did you do anything special ?
