IUAA Road Relays
UCD 'C' Team, 4th leg, 2mile.
Team was doing pretty well through first 2 legs, fell back a bit on 3rd leg, but we were still middle of the field, and 2nd best 'C' team, as far as I know.
Went out not really knowing what sort of time I'd do, or hope to do. Knew I'd been 11:14 at Colours on a supposedly "long" course. So, wanted to make sure I was sub-11, and go from there. I would have been really happy with 10:30 too.
So, 10:39, I am happy with! A good time for me, and slowly making good progress. 14th of 30 on the leg.
Found the run alright. Started running, and usually for me, I found myself unable to guage how quickly I was/should be running. Felt like I was running quickly, but not too fast. Felt pretty good. Went through 1 mile in 5:18, and figured then that the pace was good. Started to feel the pace in my legs shorlty after, and knew as I wouldn't be running the start of this mile as quickly as the last, I'd have to push harder. I did. Worked hard through to the end, and pleased with result.
