Well I finally made it race day! It was well worth the trouble to make sure I was rested. My goals were to break 1:20 (previous PR) and to keep at least the first 5 miles under 8:00/mile pace. I figured if I could get some bonus time running under 8:00/mile early, I wouldn't have to push too hard if I fell behind later in the race to break 1:20. Well sure enough, I hit both goals...and by a lot!
Distance: 10 miles
Ave Pace: 7:26/mile
PR by more than 7 minutes! More details of my race to come...
TT also had a PR of nearly a minute and half, finishing the 5k race in 27:11!
