UCF 5 Miler Results


The results are in (drum roll please):

Race clock time: 50:33 min
Net chip time: 49:51 min

OMG, I broke 50 minutes today!!! :-)

Garmin splits:

Mile 1: 9:41 min
Mile 2: 9:29 min
Mile 3: 10:07 min (began losing some steam)
Mile 4: 10:23 min (trying to conserve for the end)
Mile 5: 9:27 min (big finish)

Garmin said I ran 5.1 miles - the last .1 was in 46.65 sec.

Quick synopsis - cloudy but humid with no wind - so it felt pretty hot. While running my splits were showing me running less than 10 min/mi. I took a few short walking breaks and walked through both water stops, but I could tell my was on pace.

Started with 173 bpm Podrunner mix for the first 4 miles, then cranked to a 179 bpm mix for the last mile (fastest mile).

Average heart rate: 169 bpm
Max heart rate: 186 bpm (What??? a new max heart rate?)

Hope everyone elses races go well today!!

Addendum:

I placed 35 out of 66 for my age group
208 out of 426 women
566 out of 894 total finishers
