This race is down in Anaheim at Angels Stadium and will run on the streets around the stadium before heading into the stadium itself (like so many Disney races before!) and is FLAT!
Even though I just PRed last weekend, I am gunning for a new PR and have some pretty lofty goals based on the McMillian calculator.
According to the McMillian calculator, my 10k PR should put me at a 27:58. This is a very lofty goal as I know I will run longer than 3.1 but let's see what I can do!
B goal- sub 29:43 (new PR)
PRs are always great and I definitely think with intervals and a flat course, I can get a new PR.
C goal- sub 31
It is still pretty speedy (for me) and my interval game and course crowding could cause issues.
D goal-finish the race smiling
It may be really crowded like the dodger stadium course was and since it is flat, there won't be much way to make up time.
My plan is increase my running interval to at least 2:30 and decrease my walking interval to about :20 sec and hold on! I want to aim for around 9:45 first mile and negative split from there. If I start off too fast, my shins and calves will hurt and that will slow me down.
I'm super excited for this race and think it will definitely be loads of fun. Our plan is to head down around 6 for an 8 o'clock start. That should put us at the stadium around 7 and give us time to get our bibs, warm up and pee before the race starts.
Anyone else racing this weekend?
