Pirates on the Run - Run

Fernandina Beach, Florida
United States
48F / 9C
Total Time = 38m 49s
Overall Rank = 3/195
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 1/13
Pre-race routine:

2 hours before start. Coffee and a banana for breakfast.
Event warmup:

Jogged from my car to the race start. Maybe 1/4 mile
  • 38m 49s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 15s  min/mile

Went out quick at 6:01. Shortly after getting on the trails I was slipping and decided to back off. Signed up for this race because it's local and convenient. Didn't want to jeopardize rolling an ankle and screwing up my work put in for my marathon in 2 weeks. The winner passed me shortly after the 2 mile mark. Had I not worried about my footing I would have attempted to run with him. He beat me by 18 seconds and I think I could have easily ran 18 seconds faster. Last mile was clocked at 6:10.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Considering I felt like I intentionally backed off my pace for 4 miles on the trails and still PR'd my 10k by a minute this race was a success.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed a water and walked back to my car. Drove home and spent some quality time with my bike on the trainer.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The conditions of the trail as well as my goal marathon in a couple weeks

Performance: Good
Course: First mile on asphalt. After the first mile we went on what's usually hardpacked trail. It had rained and was lightly raining during the run so it was a tad muddy. Stay on trails until the last 1.25 miles. Run the last 1.25 on asphalt.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?

At 30 to 40 minutes into my run, my foot starts to go numb. If I keep going, the foot goes totally numb.

Taking the time to have your running form analyzed can help many athletes run further, faster or both!
