Local 10k today, was a beautiful morning here in Colorado for the race, upper 60s, low 70s but cloudy and no wind/humidity, race went really well until I realized the course was laughably long - probably around 6.35 total. We finished with a lap around the track and my watch was at 6.21 miles with about half the track still to go. I went ahead and hit my stop button early. I looked at the map afterwards to see if the course was long or if my watch didn't track me again, and this time it definitely wasn't the watch's fault. It had an almost perfect track of the route I ran, so just a long course. Either way, my time (watch) was 36:39 for the 10k. My splits were fairly even, though I slowed down the 2nd half, which makes sense given the fact that I haven't had a tempo longer than 4 miles this cycle (only 6 weeks into it). Splits: 5:55, 5:47, 5:49, 5:54, 5:58, 5:55, 1:19, 5:54 avg pace. Really good effort for this early in the season, I know I've never had this good of race of this length just 1.5 months into a training cycle, 18:13ish for first 5k, then 18:26 2nd 5k. Didn't even really look at the official time because it was so long of course, but I was more about the effort and this was a good one. Only $25 entry fee, so its all good! 11.8 total today after a 3 mile cool down with warmup
