Today's run showed no sign of pain and discomfort and it was great. With the lack of regular training I was sure that I was not going to run any faster and the time was exactly as my last 10K run. I also switched my shoes. Since I did my last half in Oct 2014 I have been running on my New Balance 890v4. The shoes are great and I have almost run 500K on them. I went back to my New Balance 880v4 which are bit more cushiony than 890. I think that did make a difference in today's run.
The weather has been so good this week and I went out without a jacket. 2 Mins out I realized it was bad idea and so went back to get a light jacket. Its really hard to dress in this weather because I knew after 20min I was going to be hot in the jacket. Luckily the cold wind kept blowing throughout the course and it was a great run all the way to the end.
This was my first race with Garmin 920Xt and it was good , the distance was exact 10K and it was in sync with all KM markers. Here is how the run went.
