Monster PR

I am so stoked; I ran the Shamrock 15k this morning and finished in 1:20:29 - this is a 9-1/2 minute PR for me at this event. I am feeling so good; my splits are here. I need to say that my pod tracked the course at 9.5 miles so this data is based on that distance:

9:02
8:50
8:56
8:40
8:34
8:22
7:54
7:40
8:16
4:12 (for the last .5)

Regardless, this is an awesome pace for me over this distance. The course is about 4-1/2 miles UP and 4-1/2 miles DOWN; with maybe .3 of flat mixed in. I was amazed when I saw my splits going up the hill; I didn't pay any attention at all when I was running and thought I was going much slower.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

  6. Kathy ~ glad to have you along for the ride. Thanks for commenting. I love to know who is out there I can share with.

    WOW! Your miles were FAST! Great job!

    I couldn't find your e-mail so I'll ask here. Feel free to email me if you'd like shellyrm (at) yahoo (dot) com. What ultra are you looking at? 50k 50m 100m? - oh I just read it's a 50k. How many marathons have you run? Where are you geographically? Did you read about my trail 50k? I HIGHLY reccommend doing your first on trails. Yes you might be slower but the enjoyment factor keeps you going.
