Sub50 at last (Takbo.ph Run)

Distance: 10k
Target Time: 49:59
Result Time: 48:38

It was 5 months ago since I ran my last 10k race. Now that I’ve finished several 21ks and a marathon, I don’t know how fast I will be for this distance. My goal is to cross at a Sub50 mark for 10k before the year ends. I guess I finally got it.

Before the run with Kathy, Anna and Philip

Takbo.ph personalized singlet and bibs on, we are all set and ready to go.  To hit a sub 50, my plan is to maintain a 5min pace per kilometer for the entire distance. I guess that would give me a 50min time but with a dash to the last few meters, I will be able to hit the sub50 time. Then there goes the gunshot. I started my speed with a 5:10/pace so not to burn me out on the latter part of the race. After a kilometer, I sped up to 4:55-5:05/pace just to compensate for the 10secs lost on my first kilometer (I think I’m becoming so detailed here). Fast forwarding the scenario, I’ve hit my 6th km at 30mins. I checked my systems… legs were fine, heartbeat ok, felt great and the weather was cool. With that condition I was ready to set my new 10k PR. Pushing the pedal to the metal, I gradually increased my speed. Without further ado, I crossed the finish line way beyond my goal time.

Out of 1187 10k runners, I ranked 39th place overall and 2nd on my age group. Oh yeah, while going back to the parking lot to get my camera, I saw my 2 Demi-Gods in running. They placed 2nd and 1st on this event respectively.
