Race Results

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

My race went well for me, my time was 33:26. I ran well until about mile 2 and then I looked at my watch. Ever since I started training at the gym that has an Army chart, I have had a dream of doing a sub20 minute mile and when I saw I was not going to make it on this run, I sort of had a "oh, what the hey attitude" slowed down a bit, plus it was the worst of the upward incline. It took me a bit to get my frame of mind right again.

All my 1/2 mile splits were in the all under 6 minutes and my average pace per mile was 10: 35. An improvement from my last race.

Here is a photo of what the view was at the turn around:

Next race is August 8, I want to keep up with my granddaughter on that one, so I am doing Running Mate's Fastest 5k Training.

I will need to focus on training and nutrition these next four weeks. Choices, it is all about choices.
