3rd Overall 1st Master
So finally got to meet my coach today. He has been coaching me since Jan. 1. He raced today as well. He did okay! First place! He smoked the competition. Also meet footfeathers today for the first time. He ran just behind me for 4th place. So a good day for the 3 of us.
I thought I would run a faster time but the course was a bit more
challenging than I planned on. My splits were all over the place.
Mile 1 6:25
Mile 2 6:08
Mile 3 6:05
Mile 4 6:35
Mile 5 6:29
Mile 6 6:44
Mile 7 6:30
Mile 8 7:28 up mt carbon
Mile 9 6:01 down mt carbon
Mile 10 7:02 very tired this mile
Mile 11 7:12 still tired
Mile 12 6:57
Mile 13 6:19 felt good this mile
Mile 13.4 2:13 under 6:00 pace
Not the kind of pacing I will do at GB next month. I plan on
running a steady 6:05 pace for 26.2 miles.
Overall a positive run today as it gave me some racing experience.
