Sub-1 hour 10K??
Note the dead palm tree out in front of my house....when the cold is finally gone those dead leaves are coming off!!
I think I might have a sub-1 hour 10K in me....
So I am putting it out there for this weekend's Winter Park Road Race.
Unless something unusual happens, I will PR this weekend (current PR is 1:03:57).
If I have a really good day, I think I can bust 1 hour. That is a 9:39 min/mi pace which I think I can maintain. That is, as long as I don't use my usual 10K strategy, which from the comments on Shirley's blog, a number of other folks use. It's the "go out too hard and try to survive" approach to 10Ks. What I really want to do is go out easier, negative split, and finish strong. I do it on my 5 milers all the time, so this should be a no brainer.
I just need to watch the start....I think I will focus on mental training for the rest of this week! :-)
Race report Sat or Sun we shall see!
