#Project18 Fail Turkey Trot 2010
My 9th Turkey Trot(16th annual) didn't go as I had hoped. The weather turned to crap. Sleep is a thing of the past with Alex now. I figured surely I could break 19:00 with all the running I've been doing, especially after running 19:13 last year with zero running. Well that's what I get for thinking. 19:00.0000. I screwed myself going out too fast. I told my self not to get caught up in the wave in the first mile. Nope did it anyway(mistake #1). 5:36 for the first mile. I panicked a little and throttled back(mistake #2). Ran second mile a little too comfortable in 6:20. Fell asleep in the 3rd mile (mistake #3) 6:26. Saw the finish clock & sprinted for all I was worth to hit 19 exactly. Damn so close. Should have leaned. What I should have done was run even splits. I guess I'll have to regroup & hit a 5k next week.
