Hydrated and ate my pasta and a 1/2 a bagel last night.
0.5 k Split - 2:45
1.0 k Split - 3:14 (uphill) / 5:59 !!!
1.5 k Split - 3:30 (uphill) .... this combined time for 1.5 k matched my earlier race-pace time
2.0 k Split - 3:32 / 7:02
2.5 k Split - 3:24 (downhill)
My wife kept me going by urging me on to hit my goals! The first 800 metres or so were the fastest running I could do, and then I slowed down. Hydration and eating seem good for this race. I did feel a little bloated from the pasta last night. But still felt better today than lots of other days. I'm going to keep tuning this for next Wednesday.
Interesting how nutrition helped with my times just separated by two days.
