Going in to this race my left knee was questionable at best.  Once warmed up and started it was fine.  First half in 1:27:52 - Was feeling good through about 15 - maybe it was too fast first half ? I don't think it was - my legs were worn down from 3 marathons, a couple 5ks,  and a half in the last 3 months.  6 marathons in a year's time.  Oh well - all weak excuses - my fitness wasn't there after having to go fairly easy the last 2 weeks before this race due to knee problems.  Dropped down to 9:00's and 10:00's over last 10k and hobbled in in 3:17:33 on extremely sore right hamstring, left calf and both knees... :)  I predict a much better marathon in the spring after some rest and training only for that single marathon (instead of just entering every race that comes up :))

1.5 mi. WU w/ strides getting the knee loose - kind of - it still felt tight and slightly painful.  Pretty slow time on a hilly course.  Fell off pace at the end as well :( - oh well - it felt good to get a decent paced run in, after a week off.

 

PS - Isn't a 5k 3.1 miles?  I keep getting the error message that this entry is not a standard distance?

Race: Tree City 10k (6.2 Miles) 00:39:59, Place overall: 2, Place in age division: 1
Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance
1.140.006.200.007.34

Tree City 10k in Greensburg, IN.  Flat course but with some minor "obstacles" specific to the conditions of the race.  This flat, 2-lap course passes over a one lane bridge where slower runners participating in 5k cause a traffic jam - had to "lightly nudge" a runner as I passed to her right - sorry whoever you were :(  Part of the course follows a gravel path that is ground down to a sandy surface - this noticeably slowed me down on both laps.  The head wind at times was also a factor.  However, I think this is actually my 10k PR, though not the time I was shooting for.  2nd overall.

 

What am I doing wrong here?  The same error message with a "non-standard distance"?
