Medtronic TC 10 Mile - Run

Minneapolis, Minnesota
United States
Twin Cities In Motion
55F / 13C
Total Time = 1h 02m
Overall Rank = 85/6515
Age Group = M 40-44
Age Group Rank = 4/385
Pre-race routine:

A powerbar around 50 mins pre-race, and a Roctane (with a bottle of water) about 15 mins pre-race.
Event warmup:

Nothing. Some light stretching while standing around.
  • 1h 02m
  • 10 miles
  • 06m 12s  min/mile

I hit the first half how I needed to, but then I had nothing for the last half. My legs were OK, my breathing was OK, my feet were OK - I just couldn't "GO." I think it was the lack of speed work this summer.
What would you do differently?:

More speed work (but was trying to get over that calf thing, so it was what it was).
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing. Walked to light rail, enjoyed sitting for 10 mins on the ride home, and then stretched OK at home about 90 minutes after finishing.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of speed work.

Event comments:

Love this race! Just felt brutal this year.
