I woke up at 5:50 am and felt like running. Surprising as I thought I would feel dead. I suited up and drove down to Yarmouth. Though a little tired, I wasn't surprised as I usually take a day off after a race.
I decided to start fairly easy and pick it up for a strong finish. My hope was to do a 43 - 44 minute run. I felt good and was happy to feel quite strong in the woods of mile 4. This is usually my toughest mile during the race.
My average heart rate for the 5 miles was 143 and a peak at the kick of 167.
My total time of 43:42 was very acceptable and my kick was quite strong.
Went home for a cooldown swim.
