The Great Buffalo Chase 5k - Run5k

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Frankfort, Kentucky
United States
Buffalo Trace
70F / 21C
Total Time = 26m 50s
Overall Rank = 155/1000
Age Group = 40-43
Age Group Rank = 3/
Pre-race routine:

woke 5:45, coffee & half a bagel with pb & j, water.
drove w. Danielle & Joe to race in Frankfort.

Event warmup:

brief 5 min jog, then 4x light strides & stretching
  • 26m 50s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 40s  min/mile

It was humid and I was nervous after the Bill Pollom, so I ran the whole race pretty conservatively, starting with my first mile. First mile said 9min/mile (but perhaps marker was off?)

Good: better pacing, good kick
To improve: find the middle ground to push myself harder --> I think I could have done a faster race overall, but i was afraid to push.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder --> perhaps aim for 8:25/mile? Seems like if I did 8:32 in Stanford with that giant hill about a month ago, then I can do 8:25-8:20 on flats.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Event comments:

A really great race at a great location! Well organized, lots of serious runners, so a faster race than my simple local ones.
