Race Recap – Running Diva Mom’s 10/10/10 10K Virtual Race

Running Diva Mom put out a challenge to do a virtual 10K run on 10 October. Now, as you know, I was running my marathon that day. So I said that I would do four 10km runs. Here are the results from my Polar HRM:

10km #1 – 1:01:55

10km #2 – 1:03:54 (20km – 2:05:49)

10km #3 – 1:12:58 (30km – 3:18:47)

10km #4 – 1:23:55 (40km – 4:42:42)

My first 10km was my best! Keep in mind that I wasn’t actually going out to do a 10km race… I guess what this challenge shows me is that I have to work really hard next marathon to achieve negative splits! I really need to do a 10km race so that I know how fast I can actually go!
