Ugh! Definitely my least enjoyable race since my 2 disasterous marathons in 2012. I love racing and after 40 plus years of it, I'm pretty good at assessing my capabilities beforehand. Usually I finish within a few seconds of whatever I think I can run. Usually I enjoy the competition. But not today.
Mile 1 - 6:06
Mile 2 - 6:22
Mile 3 - 6:27
Mile 4 - 6:37 (from this point on, I had no positive thoughts. Only negative self-talk)
Mile 5 - 6:49
Mile 6 - 7:28 ( walked twice. Gave up)
.2 - 1:37
Might not be ready to race a quality 10k yet. They're hard to fake. Probably should have gone out in 6:20.
Of well, they can't all be winners. I shall live to fight another day.
PM: 2 mile jog/1 mile walk.
