I ran part of the course before the race and figured out that had marked it wrong again this year and it would be short. There was a 5 and 10K and I had signed up for the 10K. It rained during the warmup but held off during the race but I was already wet. Since I knew the course was short, I decided to try running this faster than 10K pace and maybe even push it at 5K pace. First 3 miles went well and then slowed down a bit but still faster than my 10K pace overall and 2 seconds per mile slower than my 5 mile PR in 2008. Overall a good race for pace 6:13/mi for 33:01 overall and 5.3 miles. I still like this race even though they can't seem to get the course marked correctly and it is a certified course with a map. They say they will try better next year. Placed 2nd overall and won 6 months to Anytime Fitness.
Only ended up running 7.7 miles between the warmup and the race. I still am not feeling real motivated with running, but am happy if I can continue to get 40 something miles per week for now. I went home after and did some P90X which made me feel really sore today. Even my neck muscles hurt. I ran a 17 mile long run this morning that went okay and then really fell to pieces that last mile. Average pace was 7:55, but last mile only 9:40.
