Wesley Chapel 5K - Series Final (until Spring)
19:32, seventh place (I think), one female ahead of me.
Weather conditions were great, nice, cool and crisp but comfortable once warmed up. I was feeling pretty good but was having trouble tapping deep into enthusiasm but results were pretty close to last two races, just a little bit slower (last two were right at 19:21).
Splits this time: 6:09, 6:11, 6:14, and 5:51 pace for last 0.16
I did a little bit better with the tangents this time. MacKenzie, who won the female division last time was there again and brought her time down some so there was a bigger gap between us and no one else this time for most of the race for me to chase. There was another fast woman who was ahead of me for most of the first mile, and then I was able to get ahead of her and she wasn't quite close enough behind me to push me faster. The third mile I felt like I was really slowing down a lot but as it neared the end I was able to make up some time and come close to the second mile (and really not that much slower than the first mile).
Michael is going to take a break from these races so he can figure out how to bring up the attendance and hopefully try again in the spring.
After I got home, it was still nice and cool so I took Stella out for two more miles.
Segments: warm up - 1.27, race - 3.16, cool down - 1.04, Stella run - 2.09
