So I wrote up the big boring blog post about the team, but how did I do? I ended up averaging right around a 6:34 pace, which I am generally pleased with. This is 10+ seconds faster than last year, and I felt like I felt a lot stronger at the end than in any of my previous other RTB experiences.
Thomas asked me if I thought it was the higher mileage that contributed to it, and I think it was a big factor. But more, I think the increase in all aspects of my training has helped me become a better distance / endurance runner. So much of this type of running is mental, and having a lot of experience under my belt has helped me to run smarter *and* faster.
For the numbers geeks out there, here are the breakdowns of my legs:
