Ran around/with the races in the Utah State Festival. It was pretty clear today that I'm not yet ready to race. I don't really feel out of shape as I've still been running, but I just can't push myself into a high gear without my heart complaining.
I know that I'm getting there, but it will take me longer than I thought. My AM RHR was 58.
There was a lot of drama today about the LDR circuit points. In my opinion, when you sign up for a race, you can run it in any manner that you want, but when you accept an elite entry to a race, it is implied that you are going to try your best. Moreover, there is a fine line between helping someone else and disrupting a race and between taking advantage of a rule quirk and cheating. I think everyone has a responsibility to make sure they are on the right side.
