CR Series 5k across town - Sunday afternoon - sunny and warm.  These are fun and good training runs more than anything. 

I ran solo in second place for this one.  Wanted 2mi. at LT (At least) and then not hurt myself trying to get after the 3rd mile and kick.  The effort level was a bit higher on mile 2 than I wanted.  Marathon training not helping with the 5k time to much it seems.

5:34, 5:47, 6:01, 6:42 pace for the partial.  5k Race - 18:16

WU and CD gave me 8.7 mi. total for the day

8AM race start time.  First hard frost/cold front blew in just in time for the race.  25-30 degrees and windy at the start line.  Cold start - would've been good if the wind wasn't blowing in our faces for 75% of the race.  It didn't seem to be as bad as New York (looked), but it was a factor, I felt like.

Splits: 6:22, 23, 17, 23, 22, 24, 18, 29, 22, 21, 21, 27, 23 -- 1:23:50 for first half.  Everything feeling comfortable.  0 gels eaten, but, lots of sports drink.  

6:23, 26, 25, 24, 24, 16, 20 - at 30k, I eat one gel slowly as planned.  I barely keep it down, and puke in my mouth twice over the next mile.  6:23 and 6:30 for mile 21 and mile 22.  BAM!  I hit the wall - bonk begin:  6:43, 6:45 - I chug 2 gatorades and feel dizzy a half a mile later.  I almost completely stop.  Everybody blowing past me now.  7:23 and 7:36  for mile 25 and mile 26.  I shuffle in at an 8:05 pace for the 0.33 left, as about 3 more people pass me.  26.33 GPSed - 2:51:44.  1st Half - 1:23:50 / 2nd Half - 1:27:51

10k - 39:44

Half - 1:23:50

30k - 1:59:19

20 mile - 2:07:36

 

Lots of PR s out there today.  Josh Knight (in the blue singlet) and I ran together most of the way.  He blew by me at mile 24.5 after I had pulled ahead of him by about 1 minute from 14 miles to 18 miles.  Huge 10 minute PR for him!!
