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.
