This was never a good race, though I am glad I made the last minute decision to do the earlier 5k over the 10k (it was hot and getting hotter). I felt bad during warmup and was never able to get my speed up. Pace started a tiny bit slow and fell off quite a bit by the last 1/2 mile.
I'm a bit disappointed that the last 8 or so weeks of pretty intense training, plus a consistent year or so, doesn't have me faster than I was in February. Hopefully it is all weather related, but still very disappointing.
