            Consistently Slow

              Fox valley marathon Up at 4 am. Breakfast of pasta 8oz, bagel, 32 oz powerade and Imodium(Prevent diarrhea). Afterwards I am thinking did I just eat all pasta before a marathon. Run the mile to the starting line. Some rain early. Rain forecasted for 8 am. Dedicied to take hat jacket and gloves. Hands always cold. Found the pace group without any problems. Small races are good. Pacer ( Annie) started a little. The plan was to keep her in sight until mile 25 and not to pass her. Miles 1- 6 pretty uneventful. Everyone was chatting and one guy was singing. Stopped for port potty at mile 6. RA'er said stop early for relief. Thanks. Fell back at each water stop about 50 meters. Closed the gap each time. Miles 7 -12 First gel at mile 8. Mile 10 after catching the pack I notice there was less conversation. I was in the 3:40 pace. A young lady with a 3:45 pace sign passed the group at mile 4. We reeled her in at mile 12 . Mile 13- 20 Pacer hit the half at 1:51 xx. My ideal split. Now it is a matter of holding on. One one is taking at all at this point. No major hills. Just some 100 meter inclines at 17 -20 miles. I wanted to slow down. Garmin keeps beeping speed up. Pacer is in sight. A vouleeter I past twice says " get back in the pack." I do. Please the RA'ers for the comfortable hard. I keep telling myself this is how I am supposed to feel. Hold pace. Hold heart rate. Keep pace. I did. Mile 21 - 24 Refueling. Falling back and catching back up to pacer. Notice there are 3 people with her now. Others appear to have stayed with her for 20 miles. My plan plan was to hold on to her shirt tail until mile 25. Mile 24 - 26.2 I was step for step with the pacer after 23.5 miles. At this point there are only two of us with her. The young lady decided it was time for her to pull away. I went with her. You can not believe how glad I was I did mile repeats at 5 k pace. My motto" make the late mile the best mile". Last 10 k 50: 23. AG in 6 place miles 6--- 6 at 13.1---4 at 20-- 2 at 26.2. Could not belvie how many people I passed in the last 2 miles. Found the pacer Annie and gave her a hug!

              Run until the trail runs out.

                Congratulations.  That was fun to read.  It sounds like you did a great job in pacing yourself.

                   Thanks. The pacer did a great job. 3 minute < split.

                    I saw your log.  I think you ran this race just about perfectly.  It was text book perfect.  All your miles were around the same pace.  Your HR drift was very little.  Early in the race you were running close to 8 min miles at a HR of 150 and 20 miles later you were still running close to 8 min miles and your HR was only at about 160.  Just shows you are in terrific aerobic shape.  I also saw that it was 55 degrees, which must have felt just about perfect for running.


                    Consistently Slow

                      The weather was near prefect. Just enough rain.No sun. Miles 18 -22  I was trying to keep the HR above 165. I was thinking that is what Team Oregon pace wizard recommended. HR 165 AV = 3:36:41 finish. My AHR 156. I was going for a 3:39:59. I am now a true believer in LHR training.

                      Run until the trail runs out.

                            I have a race report too Smile

                             

                             

                            I finally ran a real race this year...so happy!

                             

                             

                            this is the 5K I ran last year too.

                             

                             

                            I improved the PR by almost 2minutes, not too bad I guess. it was 21:47 Smile 7:00 min/mile pace Smile

                             

                             

                            pretty warm, sunny, but not too sunny, or I would have died :P still it affected my HR heavily.

                             

                             

                            average HR was 197, max HR 208bpm, after stopping 209bpm.

                             

                             

                            500m HR splits: 181, 189, 194, 197, 199, 201, 202, 203, 205, 207 :P

                            as for pace splits: pace was 6:34 avg for the last 500m, and for the first 500m too, the rest was about 7:05-7:10.

                             

                             

                            I felt pretty fine most of the time for a 5K, the last 500m was hard though. I guess I'm still learning how to run a 5K proper hard. but judging from my HR it was best this way now because of the sun.
