Bayou Classic 10K Race Report

This morning's Bayou Classic 10K was run under humid and windy conditions on a hilly Allen Parkway course. Still, it was a fun run and it was nice to see Chris and Tim at the start and Kim at the finish. The calves felt good, thanks to Connie's massage two weeks ago, self massage since via a foam roller, and Tiger Balm.

My splits point out I again failed to negative split (7:29, 7:29, 7:28, 7:59, 7:45, 8:14), but considering the tough east wind that would have been extremely difficult.  Happy to place 11 / 45 (top 25%) in a tough age group.

Data: Avg. Cadence: 82, Avg. HR: 167, 57 °F, 12mph E, 88% humidity.
