Today I did my first run post-Miwok DNF. Not just first race, but first run.
Therefore, my fitness level is a bit down and also I usually will over estimate what seems comfortable, pace-wise. For the first mile, I ran 7:30, and then fell apart from there, managing about 9 minutes per mile for each of the last 2 miles.
I walked a bit in those miles, which shows both that I can walk pretty fast, and I did a totally inconsistent pace for the entire race – 25:27.
