Fall Trail Run

Post by twal on Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:04 am

Ran in the Wyoming Valley Striders 5.5 mi (or so) Fall Trail Run today. Did 49:11 (9:05/mi). Very hilly with poor footing but that’s what trail runs are all about. Our club does this race with an age/gender based handicap start so, as an old man, I was about the 6th person out. I ended up 13th out of 63 (27th place scratch time), so I’m happy because they gave out 15 awards. This was my second slowest time ever on this course but that didn’t matter.

This was a special race for me because I fell two years ago at about 1.5 mi and broke by fibula. Last year I had a mild injury and didn’t run, so this year was a big comeback race for me. I was really pleased when I passed the point where I broke my leg on a steep downhill.

My splits were: 9:11. 8:08, 10:31, 8:28, 9:30, 8:04 and none of these miles were all up or all down. Otherwise they would have been 12/mi up and 7/mi down.

Good for you Tom. I'm not much of a trail runner but do some occasionally, but never as a race event. Nice splits.

I wasn't planning to race this weekend but I was in Aberdeen, MD and there was a small 5K so I decided to jump in. I'm glad I did. I officially ran 23:41, 1st out of 3 in the 60+ age group and 17th out of 54 overall. (I said it was a small race.)

That was my fastest 5K of the year so I figured the course was short. I checked it against my GPS and Google Earth and I think it was about 80 m short but that would convert to a 24:03, which is still my fastest this year.

My splits were odd - 8:05, 7:50, 7:35 to give me an average of 7:50. It was perfect weather and there was only about 70 ft of elevation difference between the high and low point on the course.

Had another good race yesterday in a 10K in Scranton. Did 50:14 which is my fastest in two years and my 8:07/mi pace was faster than some of the 5K's I ran earlier this year (much better than the bad race I ran a month ago). I finished 38th out of 153 but only 3rd out of 3 in the 60-69 age group (and they only gave 1 award per age group).

The race was on the rolling trails along the Lackawanna River which were a mix of pavement and dirt. My split times were pretty even 8:14, 8:08, 8:08, 8:12, 8:05, 8:08, (7:25).

Conditions were close to perfect, 35F and no wind. If I couldn't break 50 this day, I probably never will.
