Track Mile at Hayward Field

Post by EugeneRunner on Sun Apr 06, 2014 5:42 pm

My achilles have been a wreck, keeping me from doing any training for almost 2 months. Now I'm scheduled for exploratory surgery in 2 weeks, so that will end my running for a while longer. But I was organizing a masters mile at Hayward Field, run as part of the Pepsi Dual meet between Oregon and Arizona. I couldn't pass up racing myself.

Since I knew my time was going to be slow no matter what, I decided to just have fun. The best way to have fun in a race is start slow and finish strong. It was quite windy, so sitting back in the pack made sense anyway. The two favorites pulled away early, and I tucked in the 5th spot. By the 1/2 mile I had was up to 4th, and decided it was only fair to do my share breaking the wind, so I moved up on the turn. I ran the last two laps pretty solid, and easily pulled away for 3rd overall. My splits were 78, 78, 76, 76, for 5:08.01 for a full mile. That was my slowest mile since freshman year in high school, but just a couple weeks away from my 47th birthday, and off no training, it really wasn't bad. The crowd (announced at 5,000+ but likely much less, especially during the masters races) was quite appreciative and supportive, which is a nice perk of racing in Eugene, Oregon.

I would love to run on the Hyaward Field track but I would hate to get lapped in a mile.
