my 2nd Bolder Boulder today. around 2.2 warmup. A wave kicked off right at 6:55 as scheduled, goal was to go under 37 minutes, and given the absolutely perfect weather (49-51 degrees, almost no wind), I thought I would have a shot at it -- especially given my recent high mileage. However, what I failed to realize beforehand was all the marathon training I've been doing the past 5 months has sapped quite a bit of my speed. 6:00 felt like good, both sustainable but decent effort-wise, but I just had no other gear to kick it into like I do when I do speed training. My watch splits and the official splits were at odds with each other, so I will just go with what they had:

1 - 6:01.6

2 - 6:01.7

3- 6:16.7

4- 6:06.8

5- 5:56.1

6 -6:05.6

change - 1:25 (really was disappointed with my effort here)

Total - 37:53, 6:06 avg pace

Overall- I can't be too disappointed with this result. It's slower than last year by about 30 seconds, and certainly off my goal for this race, but at the same time, I am at 1110+ miles at the end of May, which for me is extremely high + I ran 2 marathons within 3 weeks between 3 and 6 weeks ago. I could feel in my training that my top-end speed wasn't there and I hadn't been doing speedwork, so this is probably the best I could do at this tough course today. I could feel the endurance training kicking in as I still feel like I had more miles to go at the end (though probably would have kept clicking away that same 6:06 pace). Trying to get one more 10k in next weekend before I leave for Europe for the summer. It is downhill, so will benefit from that and see if I can open up my pace a little (will be good for confidence if nothing else).
