Burlington 5k Race Report



Target pace: 6:11 (9:57 / mi)

Splitpace/kpace/mi
1 K5:539:24
2 K6:129:56
3 K*6:2210:12
4 K6:099:51
5 K6:079:47
* water stop

Avg HR: 150
Max HR: 166

I fought with myself from about 3.5k to about 4.75k.  But a strong (coaching!) voice kept telling me "you've been killing your speed work" and I kept speeding up to match/surpass my target pace.

It was AWESOME !!!

I couldn't watch the whole video since I have the worst internet connection known to mank ind, but I loved watch the Santa's take off!

Cat's and dogs whaaa?

Michelle said...

Great video! Seeing all those running Santas is pretty funny! Congrats again on your PR!!

Jill said...

Sheesh, Andrew....and you were once worried about pre-race warm-up drills. Looks like you got that down - perfect dynamic stretching if I do say so myself!!!

In the words of the good Doctor S: Oh the places you'll go. Congrats, buddy - very proud of you!!

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

Awesome!!! That is just so cool having everyone wear the santa suit! I'm impressed you were able to PR in such an outfit!!! Hats off Santa Andrew!

Karen R said...

That looks like so much fun!

Congrats on your PR!

Adam said...

Congrats again! that middle part is always the hardest part for me as well. You're into the lactate building part of the race but you're not within 1 mi of the finish. Way to not talk your way out of a PR! sub 30 here you come.

Lindsey said...

You are so freaking awesome!! Nice job!!

Christina said...

Oh wow! The video brought a smile to my face! A smiler wider than any McD's pancakes would bring.

Detroit Runner said...

Great Job! I alway think to myself, "run like hell until I almost puke at the end" Yes, I know gross.

Patrick Mahoney said...

bobbi said...

Love the video - that's a LOT of Santas!

Quinton J said...

Way to PR...The only guy I know who can do it in a Santa suit. Put my name down for next year.

Heather said...

Great video! I've never seen so many santas in one place! I don't know how you managed to run that fast in that suit!! You looked great!

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

That looks like a blast... but not so good for the spectators... I imagine telling them that you're the guy in the red suit doesn't help much!!! Congrats on the PR!

Lee said...

Way to go!

Your outfit is awesome, Andrew, and your ability to compile and edit video footage in such a short amount of time is pretty badas$.

It looks like you're rocking some good times, too!

Matty O said...

Catching up on blogs lately.

PR BOOYAH!

Looking good too man (in a non gay way). Looks like you are slimming down.

Keep up the good work and keep pushing yourself, you are gonna have to change your blog title soon :)
