Official time: 24:04. Boo. My Garmin said 24:02 which I deem to be more accurate with a non-chip timed race and me starting 4 rows deep, but whatev. Besides as my co-worker/intern said, at least you weren't a few seconds faster with this problem. It'd really suck to think you broke 24 minutes only to find out a few weeks later that you didn't. Excellent point co-worker/intern. :)
Age Group Place: 1 of 4. (If I would've known this prior to the race, I think I would've changed my pre-race goal from placing in the top 3 in my division. Ha.)
Gender Place: 1 of 23.
Overall Place: 11 of 58. Missed the top 10 by 10 seconds. Grr. Oh well. He seemed A LOT farther ahead of me than 10 seconds. :)
Funniest thing about the race (which most of you won't get because you don't know my last name, but oh well, do some research if you want, you'll get a kick out of it) the Male Overall Winner's last name is Heavy. My last name is an opposite of sorts. I really wish this would've been a larger race, because that would've been a SWEET headline. When I told my bro, he told me I should submit it to Letterman. Good stuff.
This morning I had an easy 5 miler on the schedule. It was easy, but it sure was boring. I had a little bit of tenderness in my left hammie, but I'm hoping it was just thanking me for the awesome hill workout yesterday. I did 5 miles in 47:44 for a pace of 9:33 (supposed to be 9:46...close enough eh?)
When I looked at my Garmin it said that I had burned around 580 calories and I was shocked! Yesterday it said right around the same amount, and I just assumed I burned way more on the hills. Score. But when it said that today, I figured something must be up. To my surprise, my settings had reverted back to the default: Male/150 pounds/1.1.70 DOB. Stupid expensive watch.... :p
I somehow managed to eat my weekly amount of carbs today. For lunch. YIKES. I had 2 leftover breadsticks from the Olive Garden (YUM) for an appetizer. Haha. And then met an old roomie for bagels, where I ate 2. Ugh. I'm going to go into a bread-induced coma this afternoon. But sooooo tasty in the process. :)
