This was the 1st race that our Team in Training group participated in this season. 1:11:16.2 – 4 mile race – 17:49.1 min/mi
It’s not the best time by most standards but it served it’s purpose for me. It gave me a starting point and for that I am glad. I did not want to push myself during this race and for all but the last 1/2 mile I kept to my usual pace at the back of the group with a few wonderful teammates. We had previously completed a training session on January 29th of 3 miles and then on February 5th of just over 4 miles. We were prepared as far as distance for this race and because we were using it as a starting point – especially for those of us who were beginners – it was a great tool for us to use moving forward.
