My high altitude training continues, with a 10k race at 4700′ at Lake Gregory in Crestline, CA, on the outskirts of LA. This was my first 10k since March, and I wasn’t sure if i’d have the legs to maintain my speed for the entire distance – especially at altitude. The race really put the hurt on me, but I had a great time and place none-the-less.
The race winner, Romualdo Sanchez, 36 posted an amazing time of 32:06. Considering his age and the altitude, this is a phenomenal performance.
