Default Race report: "10K"

Race Report.

First of all, I really really really dont think it was a 10K (6.2 miles). It was a 6 miler. Garmin matched the mile markers EXACTLY at miles 1-4 and then they didnt have one at 5 or 6 and then it was done at 6.01. Also, there was a water stop that I walked through and right after the waterstop was the 11 mile marker for the 20K and I remember being at 4.6, not 4.8. And GMAPS has it as just under 6 miles.

It was pouring rain, cold, hilly and ungodly windy. The wind just about set me on my butt. I was hoping for 10 min miles but would have been happy with 10:30 - and with the wind I was thinking closer to 10:30. Plus I ate too much breakfast trying to not have a pumping bonk (pumping breastmilk before runs has been crashing me) and my tummy was upset.

Mile 1 (GPS1.01) 9:05(waaaay too fast girl!)
Mile 2 (GPS 1.02) 9:47 (hmmm maybe this is ok)
Mile 3(1.00) 9:55 wind kicked in at ~ 2.5 really hard, so this was still working it. good pace
Mile 4 (1.00) 9:59 hills getting tough, starting to feel it, got a bit of a stitch
No 5 mile marker but when the Garmin read 5 I realized I had an outside shot at hitting my PR except for the killer hill coming up that I have never successfully run up
Mile "6.2" (1.98) 18:39 -8:28(2.2 m) or 9:19 (2m) I walked part of the killer hill. There is no way I averaged 8 min miles on the rest of that.

Either way I am really happy, but I think if I counted this as a 10K it would be setting the bar awfully high because I did it in

57:27!!!!!! Which as a 10K would be 9:15 and as a 6 miler would be 9:35 (PR for 10K - at least post 2004 because I never kept track of my earlier races - 59:04 or 9:32)

This was definitely a harder 10K though with the wind and the hills. So I dont think it was really a PR because it was short, but way faster than I expected to be back to in only 3 months post partum. Looking forward to an awesome 2007 running year.

Congrats! Sounds like a well-earned PR to me.

Wow!! Hey, if they said it was a 10K, and you did it in record time, just accept it! (I didn't even want to do the 20 min. drive to Target in the next town over because it's windy, cold, and wet so I stand up and applaud your bravery for running in it!)

...the problem with just accepting it is...well, I dont want to be dissapointed NEXT 10K lol

I'm really happy -I'm not quite back to where I was before I sprained my ankle (10/05) but definitely back to prepreg shape.

How you even run while nursing amazes me! I nursed my 2 and just felt like the additional weight up top kept me from doing anything beyond 30 minutes out from feeding them. So congrats on being such a mover & shaker and a great mommy to your little moo!

Great job, ennay! I'm almost inspired to sign up for that 10k, but I still have reservations!
