10k on the 10th

I usually don't post on Sundays. Too tired. Too lazy. Too everything.

But there is something of an Internet running revolution going on at one of the blogs I read. A blogger named Nancy is hosting virtual races and inviting people to post their times on her blog, whether they ran in real races or just workouts.

From the looks of her comments, lots of people are participating.

Saturday was her 10k on the 10th. I did something of a 10k today, though it was a training run. I was still recovering from a 15k I'd run on Saturday, so today, I ran 6.5 miles with the goal of keeping my heart rate under 80 percent max for the entire run.

I knew it'd be a good day when I stepped outside and saw that it was 20 degrees cooler than it was Saturday. 55 degrees is perfect running weather. And even though I was a little sore, I ran every mile, except the first warm-up mile, in under 9 minutes.

6.5 miles in 56:47

My average heart rate for the entire run was 76 percent of max.

Here are the splits:

1 - 9:20
2 - 8:33
3 - 8:34
4 - 8:25
5 - 8:40
6 - 8:50
6.5 - 4:25

A revolution!? Well, that is extremely kind of you!! The post before describes why I started these, I hope it will help make some sense of it. :D

I am loving 5ks and Cabernets - that is a great name. Also, that pic of Noah is just to die for. I look forward to reading more. Thaks so much for stopping by and running with us. Look for a full race report in the next day or so.

I am going to use your first 6 splits plus .2 miles at the pace you ran the last .5 if that is okay. I have the last .2 miles in approximately 1:46.

Hope that is okay.
