Winnipeg, Manitoba

12C / 54F
Total Time = 50m 39s
Overall Rank = 121/360
Age Group = Male
Age Group Rank = 94/195
Pre-race routine:

Got up and had a bagel and coffee. Went to my running room clinic and watched the lecture on training by heart rate. Sipped water and gatorade.

Event warmup:

Got to the race just minutes before it began. Went and lined up at the starting line. That was my warm-up.

  • 50m 39s
  • 6.25 miles
  • 08m 06s  min/mile

Ran quickly today, but not fast. I've got a 20 miler tomorrow, so I didn't want to go flat out. I found myself going too fast at times and had to throw out the anchor.
Split 5k at 26:09.
What would you do differently?:

Not play softball for the first time of the year the night before. Not have to run 20 the next day.
Basically, I could have run this race quite a bit quicker than I did, but a) I was hurting and b) I didn't want to be more hurting for Sunday's LSR.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and chatted with the race director (gal I know who sucked me into doing this run in the first place).
Had some oranges (delicious!), bananas, and 1/2 a bagel.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Throwing the brakes on when I started getting caught up in the moment.

Event comments:

Great run, and I'll definitely be back next year. Hopefully I'll be able to stay for the shwag, which apparently was phenominal.
