View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Manchester, Connecticut
United States
37F / 3C
Total Time = 34m 33s
Overall Rank = 942/11272
Age Group = M55-59
Age Group Rank = 28/562
Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

a few strides while heading to packet pickup-got there 3 minutes before it 'closed'-even got a seed card by begging (and showing times from some triathlon races)
  • 34m 33s
  • 4.75 miles
  • 07m 16s  min/mile

just went out and tried to hold HR=150
when I saw I had a chance for sub 35 in the last mile, I clicked it up a bit
and held on with a final push at the end
What would you do differently?:

nothing-perfect weather and the kids had a blast
Kyle dressed as a giraffe and Mike had a cape on
both did some drinking-Ky went with shots and Mike named
his strava run-'5 beers and a shit'

Happy Thanksgiving!
Post race
Warm down:

jogged back to the car

Can I cram for my big race after having to break from training due to a crash?
