Too easy?   Leave a comment

I wasn't supposed to be in the country for yesterday's national event at Alon HaGalil (15 minutes from home), but my business trip was cancelled, so of course we showed up and ran. As planned, I've been resting for the past few weeks, so I took it easy and enjoyed a light run through the woods, on a course which was very fast and in my opinion too easy. My route is here – 44:02 for 5.6km, and Roni almost beat me with 44:05. I was 4th in H40, but it didn't make any difference.
I have no complaints to the organisers about the level of the course – it can be very hot in May (though it wasn't), and the undergrowth in the unused (and more technical) areas of the map is not fun, so planning a fast course is fitting for the season. But it was also the last national event, which can decide ranking positions and should therefore be more of a challenge. Maybe we should plan the season more carefully, so that the decisive races can be as technical as possible – next year's plan seems to be much better.
