Wow, that was a good run. Today I ran the Nike+ Human Race 10k. My results haven’t posted yet, but I did upload them. I thought I was going to get rained out, but the weather held out for me, thank goodness!
I managed to run 10.01km in 56 minutes, 10 seconds! This is the fastest I’ve run 10k and beats my previous time by almost 6 minutes, so I’m really excited. According to my iPod, I ran an average pace of 9:01 per mile (5:36/km).
I’m going to try to include the widget from the Nikeplus website, so you can see my run (if you get der5er by e-mail, you’ll have to visit the website to see this):
That little chart will show you how fast I was going for the entire run. Higher on the chart means I was running faster. At the beginning of the run, I was going really fast (for me) at 7:37/mile. After that I slowed down a little bit.
If the chart doesn’t load for you, you can try to check it out over at Nike’s website.
I had a really good time this morning, and even got to do a little cool down with Max and Pepper. I saw them just beginning their walk as I finished up the race. So, I went on their walk with them. Pepper takes lots of breaks, but I guess that’s okay when your legs are only 5 or 6 inches long!
It wasn’t the same as running in an event with 5 or 10 thousand other people, but it was definitely a fun goal to work towards. I think next I may do the American Family Fitness 6th Annual 10k in October.
