Short version: better than I thought. The wheels started to fall off around 11.5.
AP: 8:17 (8:07, 8:30, 8:25, 8:19, 8:23, 8:12, 8:13, 8:16,// 8:13, 8:17, 8:08, 8:27, 8:17)
Long version: I saw a friend and ran with her the first mile, but she was going too fast for me. Felt good down the canyon and on the golf course. Took GU at mile 5.
Really started to hurt when I hit the MTC. Hung on for as long as I could. Took water at mile 12 and just kept thinking 4 laps around the track…3 laps around the track….2 laps. The wheels were rolling off :(
Ironically, I ran a faster AP than I did the Freedom Run. My PR in this course is 1:47, so I felt pleased I was only 2 minutes off for a “C” race.
Time to get back to work. And take a nap!
