25K Race

I must admit I was pretty disappointed with my performance. The temperature was cool, the air was dry, there was only a light East wind. I honestly expected to run this race near 6:20 pace. But I didn't.

Congratulations to my age group rival RobW who ended up with first place in the AG! Rob and I both lived on the fifth floor at Rice's Sid Richardson College way back in 1978-1979. It's great to see another Sid Rich person taking the hardware.

Here are the splits:
1 - 6:20, 149 bpm
2 - 6:23, 12:43, 159 bpm
3 - 6:28, 19:11, 162 bpm
4 - 6:01, 25:12, 162 bpm this mile was short
5 - 7:02, 32:15, 161 bpm
6 - 6:30, 38:45, 159 bpm
7 - 6:22, 45:07, 162 bpm
8 - 6:35, 51:42, 162 bpm
9 - 6:43, 58:25, 162 bpm
10 - 6:55, 1:05:21, 160 bpm
11 - 6:54, 1:12:16, 158 bpm
12/13 - 13:37, 1:25:53, 158 bpm
14 - 7:05, 1:32:58, 157 bpm
15 - 7:12, 1:40:10, 159 bpm
15.53 - 3:43, 1:43:53, 161 bpm

I'm seriously considering taking a few days off from running. My left knee is still giving me problems.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed in your race. Chin up! This is only one race and we all have these. I hope your knee is feeling better :)

Hey, Kevin - thanks for the congrats, although technically, RichardP beat all of us... I had a good race, but I'll gladly swap my 25k award for your marathon PR - how about it? ;-)
