I haven't run a run 10k in..years? Half and full marys and IM's but nothing requiring any foot speed in a long time. Result today was about what I'd hoped for; evidence that I haven't completely forgotten how to run and that with some work I can bridge my time back closer to what I could do when I was able/willing to make more of an issue of suffering in training.

This course is about as fast as it gets - about 1.5mi of very mild uphill slope and then downhill most of the rest of the way. I've covered, conservatively, 30kmiles on this rail-to-trail path over the last almost 20 years between bike and run, so I know every inch of the course by heart.

I have been running almost every day but it's been treadmill and slow(today was run 92 in a 100run/100day challenge) so I had absolutely no idea what to expect in a race. The only strategy I've ever had is to start fast and hope for the best; mission accomplished for the first half of the day. Results about what you'd expect for the second half; passed by 5-10 people who actually had the discipline to not blow themselves up at the start...Objective at the finish was just to maintain some dignity because I wasn't too much faster than an IM-shuffle the last half-mile. That would be in contrast to a guy in my AG(55-59) who ran just over 36mins which means he'd had time for a sandwich and a Coke before I finished..

What would you do differently?:

Get thee to the track for some repeats, son..
