Not alot of time but details will be coming. Not real pleased with the time, legs gave out with about 4 miles to go and it was pretty brutal after that... Will give more details tomorrow.
Details- I just had no legs for this race, Basically from the warm I knew that it was going to be a tough day! From mile 4 on I had a side ache which I have never had in my life and everytime I would try and speed up I would double over in pain so I would have to slow down, about the only place it didn't bother me was on the steep down hill... I will give my splits and you can see where the side ache problems started! My goal was to keep a 7:30 pace for the whole race but it didn't happen.
Splits; 7:26,7:13, 7:32, 7:44-ooch, 7:53, 8:04, 8:25, 7:56 major pain, 7:25 downhill, 7:44, 8:25 really hurting, 8:57 really ticked off and hurting at this point, 7:55 Major major pain!
About the only good thing about the last mile was I had a guy trying to pass me about the last quarter mile, I could hear him back there huffing and puffing but I was not going to let him pass!!! When we hit the last stretch he was trying to kick and pass and everyone was cheering him on but I still beat him, I did not let him pass!
I have alot of work to do. this was a pretty tough course but I think minus the side ache I win my division or atleast a top 3, instead I settle with a top 5 finish and feeling good that I was able to hold off the huff and puff guy;-(
See ya tomorrow.
