Hot Chocolate 10K

I didn't do as well as I wanted to at the race, but I am still proud of how I did - this being my first 10K EVER.

And, because I am a freak with the numbers, here they are:

Mile 1 - 8:31 (heart rate - 178)
Mile 2 - 8:54 (heart rate - 187)
Mile 3 - 9:45 (HR 187)
Mile 4 - 9:52 (HR 184)
Mile 5 - 9:29 (HR 182)
Mile 6 - 9:56 (HR 184)
Mile .2 - 2:02 ( HR 186)

Fastest speed - 7:27
Max heart rate - 192

I actually calculated 6.25 miles.

My girl Teresa fueling!!


Teresa, Sherrie, and me ready to race!


Me finishing!! I'm blurry! (that must mean I was going fast)





Thoughts
- Mile 1 - WHAT!?!? I can't be-LIEVE I went that fast in a race for an entire mile. I felt really great that mile.
- Mile 2 - still very quick and feeling GREAT. That speed work is paying off!
- And then I faded. It could have been the massive hill. Or the fact that the longest amount of speedwork was 1.5 miles.

All finished and sweaty!


Teresa placed 3rd with a screaming time of 51:20!!!!

Final time for me: 58:42. 18th in AG. (avg 9:23 pace)

More speedwork = faster me!! On to the next race!
