72F / 22C
Total Time = 28m 24s
Overall Rank = ???/8600
Age Group =
Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Work--this was a 7 pm start.
Event warmup:

Half a mile jog to loosen up. A very warm day, so muscles were loose and relaxed.
  • 28m 24s
  • 3.5 miles
  • 08m 07s  min/mile

Didn't kill myself on the run...was :24 off my goal of 28 minutes, but it was a bit warm. Wish I'd worn my HP monitor to see where my HR was...will probably do so for the Medved 5K, just to get an idea.
What would you do differently?:

Drink a bit more water before mouth was dry before the start. I didn't drink any water on course but didn't feel like I missed anything here.

Post race
Warm down:

Slow jog for another minute or two, then walking around to get food and water. Had 2 scoops Endurox with H20 post race (within 10-15 minutes of race finish). 2 bananas and a bit of sub. Was very hungry last night ~11 pm. Only had a Clif bar and a Gu as my pre-race dinner.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Only my limited training regimen. I raced the plan--not to go crazy and be a hero, just to shoot for 8:00s and feel good after the race and the next day. As I write this on Friday, I have no muscle soreness at all. (KNOCK WOOD!)

I measured the laps in half mile increments, as follows: Lap 1--4:37 SLOW in the crowd -- no where to go Lap 2--3:48 downslope of the small hill Lap 3--3:51 Lap 4--3:54 Lap 5--3:58 Lap 6--3:59 Lap 7--3:59 The Forerunner showed another 0:15 to finish 3.54 miles total distance recorded.
Course: Pretty flat...a small rise at the beginning. Narrow road...very cramped for first mile.

Well done. I like the "race the plan" part. I'll have to try that sometime.  Are you still planning on doing Keuka Lake on the 12th?
