I ran a 7k in 40:59!
The average time was 47:48 and there were 8782 Finishers (2435 men, 6347 women) I don’t have any more details (like my place or anything) because they don’t have my offical time posted yet This is just my phone time
Ok so my goal was under 40 min, I based that off of my recent runs and around a 9 min mile pace. But I learned this weekend that my phones gps tracker is accurate within 1/10th of a mile per mile so I had been training .33 miles short. Oops so really only adding 1 min for an extra .33 miles is pretty good! My split times were all over the place though 6:30 min miles to 12:50 min miles.
I also learned a few other things I need to improve upon:
My breathing stinks, the few times I had to walk (1/2 block) was because of my breathing not my legs.
I need to train on a path without 2 long stop lights. I think my body got used to those breaks.
I need to add .1 miles per mile I want to run (ie I want to run 4 miles I should run 4.4 on my phone just to make sure I did.)
I need to pace better, time to start running tempo runs (if I truly understand what they are, lol.)
Over all I’m extreamly happy and I deffinetly see a 10k in my future, I even have one in mind.
