Road Race Series Recap – 10K #2
This race was on Sunday, just a few days after I ran the Cooper Young 4-Miler and I could definitely feel the fatigue in my legs. As I stood at the start line I could already feel the tightness in my calves and my ankles and feet felt every step I took during the race.
That being said, we still had fun and I felt great about the race and my time. Unfortunately, I’m writing this a few weeks later, so I may be a bit fuzzy on the details. If you’re looking for a more thorough recap, check out what I wrote about the 1st 10K.
I still loved this course! For a more in-depth chat about the course highlights, check out the recap of our first Road Race Series 10K. Now that I had been through the course once before, I was able to put a little more strategy into place and push during the downhills and flats knowing we had hills that would slow me down in the last mile of the race.
We had great weather again — 61 degrees! I took a few walk breaks, but was able to make up for the time lost.
I didn’t use any fuel during the race or bring a handheld. The temps were cool enough that I never felt overheated and we had water stations at miles 2 and 4.
Slightly slower than last week with an overall Garmin time of 1:08:16 and an average pace of 10:54 min/mi.
- Fastest 6mi in 6 months.
- Most negative mile splits in 6 months.
- Longest duration run in 3 months
- Most calories burned in 3 months.
- Fastest finish in a month.
Here’s a peek at those negative splits:
What’s next? Another race in the series, of course! I just ran the MRTC Road Race Series 10 Miler on Sunday, and I’ll share a recap of that race this week (more hills!!).
