Age Group Rank = 7/20
Pre-race routine:

Stretching, Gel
  • 1h 44m 36s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 59s  min/mile

Strong North wind. Race was an out and back (south first). Small rolling hills with one big one.

Started feeling tired around mile 9. After mile 10 it was a mental struggle to keep going. Fatigue set in at mile 12, very tough getting to the finish.

Overall I would say that I need more muscle endurance in my legs.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. I kept HR were I wanted it. My pace with that HR was much faster than usual. Maybe because it was colder?

Maybe keep an eye on pace more and slowed it down but then I wouldn't have finished at 1h44'.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretching, very stiff. Even sore within a few hours.

Very sore in my calves the next day!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Wind maybe. I feel like I performed as best that I could.
