Pre-race routine:

Bought a 5Hr shot to go with my water. Ate a Powerbar. I skipped the Breakfast Burrito this race as a test.

Event warmup:

30 minutes prior to the race I did some light jogging. I worked on some strides and some high knee drills.
  • 26m 48s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 37s  min/mile

I went out way to fast. My splits were: 0.5 @ 8:19; 1 @ 8:19; 1.5 @ 8:45; 2.0 @ 9:01; 2.5 @ 9:16; 3.0 @ 9:16; 3.1 @ 9:16. Once I realized my mistake I attempted to hold it together as good as possible.

What would you do differently?:

I need to workout an Average Heart Rate as well as an Average Pace to keep my pacing more level. I will work this fall on pacing smarter and hopefully my race times will drop also.
Post race
Warm down:

None really. I got water and my gear to hit the hot tub. Within the hour I performed 30 minutes easy spinning.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

A couple of things. Not racing for two months and uneven run splits.

Event comments:

Nice little Tualatin run. The post race was water\juice and a snack. No real post race festivities but it were charity for a fallen soldier so the money is going to the correct place.

Age Group: 8/27
Overall: 66/184
Performance: Below average
Course: The course was from the Haden Lake normal starting area. It followed the walking trail to Cooks Park. The course went left instead of right at Cook Park making it slightly different from the Crawfish run. The turn around was near the Shelter where the Ho Ho starts with a return loop back to the starting area.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
