My first 10k race results...

Saturday, July 07, 2012

I am currently doing Running Mate Media's Faster 5k program and this week for my long run I decided to enter a 10k race just so I could get an official time. That is, an official time to beat...
I registered for the run on the last day and set a goal of finishing in 75 minutes.

Well, I beat that by 5 minutes and 40 seconds. I hit the lap button on my Garmin at each mile marker and saw that although my pace slowed during the second mile, I consistently sped up during the last 4. That is something I have not done before. So, I am excited that I may be able to get some of my speed back this summer.

According to my Garmin, my average pace was 11:14/mi. I feel so good about this because my training run pace has been averaging about 12:00/mi.
