10k this year that I've done the last two years, so wanted to keep it alive and do it again. Really flat course and even in driving sleet last year I ran 36:3X, so with perfect weather forecast I was excited to see what I could do. However, the race did not pan out well. I woke up feeling tired and my legs just had nothing it seemed like, especially the 2nd half of the race. Did everything normal before the race, just think I'm a little overcooked this fall. Here are my splits:

1- 5:56

2- 5:56 (11:52)

3- 5:50 (17:42, was at 18:2Xish at the 5k)

4- 6:03 (23:45)

5- 6:09 (29:54, wind was up during the race and was in my face here, but was fading otherwise too)

6- 6:07 (36:01)

change - 1:35, it came out to .27 in my watch, so although it seems long, this course is notorious for lapped traffic, so I was weaving all day long and so I definitely ran longer than 10k, but the course is certainly accurate


total was 37:36, 6:00 pace according to my 6.27 on my watch, but for the 10k would be around 6:02-6:03 pace. Just really lost momentum in the 2nd half and had nothing in terms of turnover, cooled down for 3.1 to get to 12 on the day, will see what is next - probably should decide when to take the impending break to recharge
