Ausherman 5 Miler in Chambersburg PA
Trying to break 36 minutes. Planned to run 7:15 pace till last mile and hope to speed up.
Fisrt half mile was too fast at about 6:30 pace, slowed to make mile one in 7:10. Second mile I was messing with my watch and had it turned off for 30 seconds. Seemed about the same pace, but watch showed it at showed 7:42, then 7:17, 7:14, and 6:40 pace in last 0.84 on the watch. Official time 35:36. Average pace 7:08.
Watch time is 35:01 for 4.84 miles - 7:14 pace. So that lost 30 seconds must have been faster.
Normally I pass a lot of people in last couple of miles, but probably more passed me than were passed by me.
