7 miles - 3 mile warm up, then the striders 5k, then 1 mile cool down. that is one tough course! lots of climbing, lots of descending, according to garmin i ran 24:09 for 3.16 miles, a 7:39 avg. which i'm fine with given the course and my particular endowment of genes, and the early season etc.

splits for 5k as per garmin: 7:53, 7:54 (a lot of climbing these first couple of miles), 7:19 (some climbing, mostly falling down hill), 1:01 for the last .16 mile (6:26 pace).

overall 83/636

dudes 50-54 8/32

*it should be noted that the weather, on the first race in the striders WINTER circuit race series, in the first week of february, was dry and temps in the low 60's. i hope the trend continues throughout the rest of the series.

10 miles - striders wrc 10k this morning. it was a little chilly out but no rain or snow. warmed up 3 miles (discovered Bues park which i'd never been aware of before), then the 10k, then a mile cool down. 

10k was 49:36 (8:04, 7:30, 7:46, 7:56, 8:39, 8:38 + 1:01 for final .17 / 7:59 avg.  i think i may be permanently scarred by the hill in mile 5 and 6. brutal, but fun. steadily passed runners throughout most of the race, felt strong had a good kick at the finish. so far this series is serving my long term goal very well. it's kind of a relief with these courses being so tough as i have no desire to "race", just to push myself hard and enjoy the pain.

i placed 84/576 overall, and 6th out of 29 old dudes (50-54) i wonder if the same 80+ runners beat me today as in the 5k?
