I ran an 8k cross country race! My 3rd race!

I ran a 8k cross country run today. I finished 51st with a time of 39 minutes even, and forth in my age group(I'll admit this bummed me out a bit!) my time would have earned me 2nd last year in this race so that makes me feel better. I was dead tired after this one, especially since I was trying to keep up with 14 to 19 year olds, out of the 150 people in the race I think they counted for 35% of the runners. So now I have done a 15k, 10k and 8k in a months time. I think I will take a break now and let my body recover from racing since they tend to make me run well above my target heart rates. Today my heart rate was 177 for the high and 165 for the average, my highest I should be in is 164 so I kinda pushed it a bit much today. So that is my report for this race. At the end of this race I had to sit for about 20 minutes.
