I ran a 10K Time Trial yesterday just to see where I stand before I start my spring training cycle. My goal was to break 40 minutes and I ran 39:35. Two seconds faster than my best time ever that I ran 7 years ago. I’m probably not as fast as I was then but shoes are much better and worth 30-45 second IMO. But I am in great shape for winter. My coach has a broad range of athletes from all over the world. Some Olympians that are running in Tokyo, a lot of potential Olympic Trial runners, and age groupers like me. Everyone good but some just good for their age like me.
I took off WAY too hard and by mile two I knew it was going to hurt. And I still had 5 miles to go. There’s nothing more painful than being out of gas one mile into a 6 mile run. I was thinking to myself, “Maybe I fake an injury” but that’s not my style. Then I thought “just jog it out, it’s not like anyone cares” but I know it was only going to hurt for a half hour and me being pissed at myself for not trying would last weeks. So I held on and ate the pain and finished. I finished last in our group of 4 and Rachael our best runner ran 5:40 pace and basically ran two 17:30 5Ks back to back. She was flying. Of course she’s a little younger and one of the top 300 women in the US. She just happens to run with me. My coach also has a runner that ran a 37 minute 5K at 5:59 pace. Which is good but this guy is 65. Yep 65. Gives me hope that I can still get faster. I’ve gotten faster for 13 years in a row now and I know it’s going to end eventually. But after watching a few of the runners in our group there’s hope that I have another decade of improvement.
I know its possible because I don’t do a lot of things I should be doing. Eating better, more water, stretching, less work. I do all this during the summer but slack the rest of the year. That’s why it will be interesting to come back in August and see what I can run when I shed 10 lbs and get in great shape. My guess is 38 something. We’ll see. I’ll pretend like someone else cares 🙂
