Outstanding & Congrats, Mitch!
Congrats on the PR!
I like the consistent pacing for the first 20. You had that 6:12-6:13 pace nailed.
Ya, around mile 7 I split I split up from the group I was with. Got a lot more consistent after that. A lot of 3:10 marathoners, running a 2:43 for the first 5 miles, made the pace a little uneasy.
I wonder how many of them blew up horrifically.
I would give you kudos but after that MaryKate burn I'm holding out
Ha David, don't take it too hard she almost caught me.
Beast! Nice avg of 6:16 pace overall. that was your goal right?
yep. decided to push it down to 6:13 ish, but I couldn't hang on to that and fell back in the last 4 miles.
It amuses me that you set a CR on a hill during a marathon. 6:09 pace too.
I'll take what I can get, but look at my pace. I had a small spot below 6:09, but I was moving more like 6:40 up that thing. Not sure why it shows 6:09 unless I am reading it wrong.
I've been wondering if the segments are a little off. That Pershing CR I did last week I expected 6:15/mi and was 5:57/mi instead. I didn't think it was that fast.
