Tempo run…Race…Fun…(Steveston Ice-Breaker 8K)

Recently I have done most of my training alone. So using, say a ย 25K trail race or a road marathon for a my “long weekly run” makes it easier for me to get out the door and do that long run and using a 5K or 10K race as a “tempo session” makes it easier to push like I couldn’t on my lonesome.

Today was the Steveston Ice-Breaker 8K. No ice to break but horizontal rain to thrash. It was wet, windy and a wee bit cold and being an out and back race on the coast meant a hard push into the biting wind and said rain for the first half and a joyful glide for the second half. The turnaround was most welcome.

An awesome tempo run and a great race. I love races!

Here’s the route
