First 10k under my belt

Saturday, February 15, 2014


It was a beautiful morning, temps right around 60. I followed my 8 minute run 1 min walk schedule. I use Mapmyfitness to track my runs and my pace. At the first quarter I was running in the low 10's. I suspected that I couldn't keep in up, but went with it, I felt good and wanted to see what I could do. After all I was going to walk in 8 minutes. So I stayed with a large pack of people until about mile 3.5, then I fell back a bit. Yet I pushed on I tried not to slow down but I was now in the mid to upper 10's, but still the 10's. Finally I got to the 6 mile marker... I pick up pace only 2 tenths of a mike left. It seemed like the longest 2 tenths ever. But I did it, 1:08:26. 11:02 average pace... Pretty good since my PR for a 5k is 11:16. I'm very happy with the results, I will run another 10k on April.

    Congrats!!! Gotta admit that I am jealous at the mere mention of 60 degrees. We are getting buried in snow here in Jersey. That's ok though. We have our methods for exercise. They are mainly indoors, but shoveling counts. Be well.
