I thought I'd get in a quick update.
1. My 10 mile race was this past weekend. I'm proud - I finished it and maintained essentially my same pace per mile as I did for my 5 mile race. (10:44) I'm sure that's because the pace isn't super fast - but at least I'm consistent!! I only ended up walking for about 4 minutes. On mile 7.5 they looped us back up a HUGE hill for the second time. I called "uncle" half way up and walked. Luckily - there is a downhill to the story so I made up some time with that.
What was enlightening to me was the fact that there aren't many "fun runners" that come out for 10 mile races. I'm learning that once you get out of the 5K range - most runners are "fit and fast".
What that means for me - I'm moving from the Middle of the Pack to the Back of the Pack....YIKES!! Do I need to change the name of my blog?
This is at approximately mile 9 - at least I'm not limping!
I hope everyone is having a great week!
