I'm pretty okay with my time. Went out way to fast and then just hung on. I'll do a race report later.
Average pace was 7:10.
Mile 1. 6:33 this mile was way to fast but I was just trying to get the legs moving and I didn't feel like I was over doing it much.
Mile 2 7:18 after the first mile I decided to pull this one back a bit but over compensated and I felt like it was to slow, there are a couple of small hills here but not that big of deal.
Mile 3 6:53 tried to push some on this mile because of mile 2, I still felt pretty good but knew at this point that I had gone out to fast.
Mile 4 7:15 I felt okay with this mile as it has some uphill in it, stayed with it pretty good.
Mile 5 7:27 I lost it on this one a little bit, mentally kind of zoned out, which cost me.
Mile 6 7:36 I'm still struggling here but trying to get the legs to move but its not happening.
.17 6:39 I still felt like I had a chance to get under 44 minutes so I picked it up here, but I missed figured the math and I should have picked up sooner, DANG!
I'm okay with this to some degree as I have improved over the last year where I thought I was getting slower, if I would have gone out a little more even then I would have probably had a better time... I think if I stay consistent and don't over train, which I have a tendency to do, then I have some good races ahead of me. I just have to get the mileage in and be a little more attentive when I am racing of my pace and have a little better strategy. It was a fun and I love doing this race every year.
See ya Monday.
