10 Mile Run!
What's this picture you ask?? Well, it is the time that I clocked in my 10 mile race this weekend! My friend Kari and I ran the Provo Trail 10 Mile Run this weekend and had a blast! It was down Provo canyon and was a really pretty run. We started at 8 am and were kind of using it as a training run for the Wasatch Back (which is next weekend) and so we weren't sure how fast we would do the run. We started at the back of the pack but our speed kicked in and soon we were passing people right and left. I felt really good the whole way, except that running down hill is harder on your legs then you think. My calves started feeling pretty tight around mile 8 but surprisingly my pace held steady. So, if you don't mind... I am going to brag a little... I hit mile 3 at 24 min... mile 5 at 39 min... mile 6 at 47... mile 8 at 63 and finally mile 10 at 1 hr 19 min and 34 sec! My goal was to do it in 1 hour 20 min, which would have been an 8 min mile and that is a fairly fast pace for me to sustain over 10 miles, but I did it! Yay for me! Now on to the Wasatch Back!
