Hello dear readers,

Today was my seventh race of the year ! We headed to Central Park for a 6.2 miles (10 km) run for the Scotland week ! It is getting colder and the choice of clothes is getting tricky. Rain was also forecasted.

I went for technical heavy long sleeves plus a 2015 NYRR Volunteer blue-gray T shirt, long technical pants and a short, plus light gloves and a cap for the rain. Too much as usual but I hate the cold.

I started in corral I, with my current 9:20 per mile best. I’ll will be in slower corral in the future as I don’t run 9:20 on long runs any more.

I need stamina, not endurance to preserve this low ranking corral level 😉

The run went OK, with light rain in the last mile. I tried to maintain a sub 10:00 minutes per miles. My watch is telling me:

1st mile : 9:31
2nd mile: 9:11
3rd mile: 9:35
4th mile: 10:07
5th mile: 9:27
6th mile: 9:22

We went clock wise in Central Park, starting from Central Park South side on 59th street. Being in a far away corral, I cross the departure line in 5 minutes. We had the rolling hills till the reservoir, then the serious hills of Harlem, before returning along the Museum Mile on the East side. A great one man cheering squad on cat hill !

We had great pipe players at miles 2,3,4 and 5. Still playing under the rain!  Viva Scotland !

My watch is also telling me I ran 6.34 miles. I could not follow the shortest line as we had so many runners.

My watch says: 1:00:22 for 6.34 miles
NYRR says: 1:0016 for 6.2 miles

I finished 5348th overall, 3358th male, 247th in my age group.

One nice feature of NYRR is the age group equivalent, i.e. an equivalent result of 53:36 which better than my official personal best. They also give a ranking of 49.86% overall. I’ll need to break again the hour to go past 50% of my age group.

It is my best time for at least 6 years, since I left Japan.

This is my second race for the New York Flyers. I need to see what training I could do with then to go through the hour on 10 km. I need STAMINA !

All the best. Next week, we’ll hike near Bear Mountain. Stay tune.
