Rock n Roll San Antonio: Pace Matrix

You can see the splits I took on my watch (thus not necessarily accurate) during the race below. I have also added in the splits that were sent to me post race for the 5km, 15km and 6.1mi marks.

Mile 1

8.21

8.21

Mile 2

8.52

17.13

Oh – it is HOT!

Mile 3

9.03

26.17

5 km

27.16

Wahoo – first 5km down, three to go!

Mile 4

9.24

35.41

Mile 5

10.14

45.55

Hmmm I noted here that it took me just over 1 min to get out of a water station! Insane!

Mile 6

9.10

55.06

This was an awesome mile and I felt strong and fast and pulled some stupid antics for the photographers J (I will post when they send)

Mile 6.1

56.21

Mile 7

9.45

1.04.52

Total bottleneck - forced to a pace barely resembling a jog as road thins and crowds encroach. Unable to pass any runners.

Mile 8

9.38

1.14.30

Foot started to ache from running on cambered roads

Mile 9

9.53

1.24.23

This was the last mile that I remained under on my Pacetat! Oh and I walked for 30/40 secs – foot killing.

15 km

1.27.46

Mile 10

10.56

135.20

Took a 40 sec walk break after the 15km mark – leg / foot felt numb

Mile 11

10.24

1.45.45

Slowed to GU

Mile 12

10.20

1.56.05

Yes I walked again for another 45 sec! Why? I just lacked some motivation after another bottle neck as the course went from two lanes down to one

Mile 13

10.41

2.06.57

Yes I am not proud but I walked up part of the hill to the finish line. Who puts a hill at the end, talk about cruel!

Mile 13.1

?

2.08.25

I pressed the wrong buttons on my watch here so was unsure what time I crossed – I thought it to be 2.09.03 – adjusted chip time was sent through to me as 2.07.56
