Raw Food Marathon Day Seventy Seven


10km Race


A comedy of errors today; after getting somewhat lost trying to find the school where the race was being held (darkness and only signs in Thai!), I arrived just in time to see the 21km start :-(

Still I managed to sign up for the 10km race instead and was told it was a 6:15 start. By the time I'd been to the toilet, and had done just 2 minutes warming up, the race started at 6:05! All my pacing plans were geared towards a ~1:35 half marathon.

The weather was reasonable, Heat Index was at 87F/30C.


I set off a steady 6:42/6:43 pace (I had calculated in my head 6:45 min/miles), but it soon became apparent that was a little bit fast, I backed off aiming for just under 7 min/miles (actually went over). The 5th mile was tough, but I knew I had reserves to finish well. The finish crept up on me a bit earlier than I thought (5.97 miles instead of 6.21), but I managed a good sprint finish, passing five runners in the last 200m. top speed ~14mph.


HRM 10k raceThe dropped heart rate and speed at the end is where I failed to turn off the Garmin 405! I didn't notice the auto-pause/resume triggering (added 20 secs, but ~zero distance).

My time for the distance predicts a half marathon of 1:35:30 and a marathon of 3:21:19.

Full details can be found here.


I fly back to the UK at the end of this week (via Samui where I hope to get a jungle and long run in).

My next race is the Crowborough 10km. Sub 42mins here I come!!!
