MRTC Road Race Series 10K #2 Recap

Road Race Series Recap – 10K #2

7 days later and we’re back for the 2nd Road Race Series 10K! I had a great time at the first 10K, and I was really looking forward to our second run through Shelby Farms.

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.

The Course:

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.

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.

The Results:

Slightly slower than last week with an overall Garmin time of 1:08:16 and an average pace of 10:54 min/mi.

Smashrun says:

  • 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!!).
