Event warmup:

usual jogging and stretching
  • 1h 17m 53s
  • 10 miles
  • 07m 47s  min/mile

started out feeling good, but could not keep the pace. started to die at mile 4. got a blister and I think it popped in mile 9. met my goal of under an 8 minute mile average. blue sky was under 7:30.
What would you do differently?:

probably take a jel flask with me. felt like i could have used it the last 4 miles or so
Post race
Warm down:

walked and light stretching. ate and drank

What limited your ability to perform faster:

speed endurance. I can run much longer, but I need to work on my overall speed for longer distances. In a 5k 6 weeks prior I averaged around 6:30 a mile; in a 10k 5 weeks earlier it was a little over 7 a mile. Need to be able to keep the speed higher and steady

Event comments:

enjoyed the race. first one of this distance. course was good, though a chunk of it is exposed to the wind. Will definately do it again
