The Second 10K

It was a hot one that day! The race started at 5:00 A.M. and it was already 78 degrees.  I had big plans of crushing my last pace by finishing in 1:05:00. It didn’t turn out that way. When I hit the 5K mark I realized I was way way behind my goal. I ran the second half as hard as I could – by my standards a a fairly awesome negative split. My official time was 1:09:04…just barely beating my last time. Regardless it’s a new PR and I’ll take it. My next race is the Komen 5K here in San Diego. The whole family is running so no big plans of a PR. Just a good time. 

First Official 10K in the Books

The runDisney Tinkerbell 10K was in May 13. I’m finally catching up with the post! Goal time was 1:10:00 and my official time was 1:09:05. Slightly longer than Strava but I’ll take it. My next race is in September and I’m gaining for 1:05:00. That’s a reach but worth the effort. 

More on running…

I’m a geek when it comes to the concept of Quantified Self (QS). I’m always looking for the ultimate solution to track runs, calories, heart rate, etc. I would also say that it is to a fault that I’m always looking. There is a certain freedom in just running. I have know routes and that results in known distances. I don’t run faster as a result of knowing my current pace… But the fact that I can know makes me want to know. Plus QS isn’t cheap…and there is always the next new shiny thing. Like the Apple Watch 2 that I want but don’t need. (sigh…)
