We ran another race on Sunday morning, the 4-mile End of Summer Fire Run from La Jolla to Pacific Beach.
I finished with an official time of 48:56, about one minute better than our previous four mile race. I definitely need to work on speed, since I once again went out too fast and started with an unsustainable pace, alternating walking with running after about two miles. I still finished slightly faster than my usual training pace, but I’m still not sure how to train at one pace and then magically run faster in races (of course, if it was only a two mile race, I would have been fine! Hmmm.)
Next race is another 5K in October, my goal is to beat my previos time by at least two minutes.
