It could have been sharper if you'd shot it at 1/125 or 1/250.   The rule that an exposure of a reciprocal of the focal length is too sketchy to depend on.  The common rule of thumb that you can shoot a 50mm lens at 1/60 means that the results most of the time will look sufficiently sharp when enlarged around 8 X and the resulting print looked at at arm's length but it will not necessarily be critically sharpness.  Your lens will become razor sharp if you shoot it hand held no slower than 1/125.
