Turkey Trot 5 Miler

5 Miles 29:33 5:55 average per mile
8:30 am) 40 cloudy & breezy
10th overall out of 1285 2nd in age (30-39)
Not a great race for me. I was hoping to be at least
a minute faster if not more. I just felt slow from
the start. Usually in these shorter runs the first
mile feels easy not today. I was struggling from the
start. I don't think I warmed up enough. I find I run
faster when I actually get a good sweat going before
the race starts.
I didn't wear my Garmin today. I thought if I didn't
wear it I might run better. Well I guess it didn't
help. I thought about not racing Sunday after today.
But changed my mind. I need to get back up on that
horse as the saying goes. Sunday is a 15k so that's
to my advantage I seem to do better the longer the
race is. Well see if nothing else it will be a good
training run.
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Jack Daniels actually has recommended folks do a slightly faster than race pace repeat of about 400 meters 10 minutes before there race to "open" up. I never do this, but some folks swear by it. Happy Thanksgiving.
