  • 09m 31s  min/mile

With my usual 5k pace being around 8 min/mi I was hoping for better. But had a nice learning experience with what happens to your calves shortly after you start running after mashing on the bike....they lock up! After shaking that off, I trudged through the rest of the course. I had really expected to be closer to my stand-alone 5k pace.
What would you do differently?:

I've since been stretching my calves while on the bike subsequent to the dismount and making sure fully hydrated before the race, and have not had a cramping issue like that again.

Event comments:

I like this race, flat and fast and will probably do it again next year and aim for a PR, this would be a good course for it.
