First steeplechase of the season! I forgot how sore you get after the first one and my legs are dead. Still, it was an ok race, felt stiff and fatigued going in but managed to hit an alright time for the first race of the season (though I was aiming for a 10:40). Started off the race right with the pack, we hit a fast first lap so we relaxed a bit for the next which was nearly on pace. Then the pack fell back really fast and I was by myself for the last 6 laps. Tried to keep the pace up between hurdles, but kept hitting 91 instead of 90 (long track for an outside water barrier) . My hurdling was pretty good overall, my left lead wasn't too great, and by the end all of them were less graceful. Water barriers were awesome though! I hit all but one with my good leg and one-footed every landing - I didn't even got my shorts wet. Champion! Still, I can do lots better. And run at sea level next time. :)
