Race Preview: Ajax Run the Lake 10k
I am doing this 10km as a tune-up for the 1/2 marathon I have planned next week.
I have never done this race before, but when I have run the Ajax waterfront the experience has been mixed. It's a nice park area with a great view of the lake, but it's pretty hilly... and the wind can really whip up at times. Current forecast is for temps just barely above freezing - so it could be crispy!
Current 10km PB: 40:53
Chances I'll set a PB: 0%
My PB is from Sporting Life... net downhill and that particular day there was a great tail-wind! So a cold November hilly course won't yield the same kind of result... I'm thinking 4:20/km pace is more realistic, works out to about 43:00-43:30 or so.
