This was the second time I've done this race. It is also the race that the picture from my blog currently comes from. This year was much cooler though.
Ran to Sugar House from my house plus some other running for a 3 mi warm-up.
Avg. 9:30 HR 154 (strap still misbehaving 110 to 160 HR)
Race was good I felt like I was pushing. Literally and figuratively. The race was two loops of Sugar House.
Mile 1: 6:08 HR 176 A 70 ft D 53 ft
Mile 2: 6:25 HR 184 A 67 ft D 62 ft
Mile 3: 5:59 HR 184 A 46 ft D 82 ft
0.04 Mi: 0:14 HR 188
TOTAL: 18:47 HR 181 A 183 ft D 196 ft
If given another 1 mi I probably could have won the race. The positions were set by 100m into the race and stayed the same the whole time. It is always good to be pushing the girls. I think it gives them a good taste of racing without starting them too young. My wife took 3rd overall for the women so overall another double hardware weekend.
Cool down ended up being 4 mi. Most of the way home but then realized we forgot my daughter's shoes at the bounce house so I ran back.
Avg. 8:41 I had taken off the HR A 541 ft D 380 ft
Overall a very good day and I took off nearly 15 sec from last year although both girls were much heavier and I'm sure I was pushing > 80 lbs.
