It was wet and the air was heavy and damp, but I was bound and determined to have a good run. I decided to start hard and just try to hold on. I finished the first mile in 7:33 which is pretty close to how I start a 5k. Miles were as follows:
6.2 51:15 average pace 8:14
I know this strategy does not work well for most people, but I have my best times when I overcook the first mile. In my log I have one recorded time that came out better than this, but that was when my GPS was not synchronized - I am fairly sure that this is my best 10k yet. I would love to get under 50:00 and if I ever get this pose thing figured out it is certainly not out of the realm of possibilities.
I have Cindy to do tonight after I taxi my daughter home from gymnastics and I plan to PR that as well - there, now I said it so I have to do it.
