Today myself and Hammett headed down to Lincoln RI for the Rhody 5K. We were both pretty relaxed on the ride down and I felt today might be a good shot at getting under 16mins. When we arrived we meet up with the CMS guys and headed out for a warm up over the last 2miles of the course. Quickly realizing that it was humid and warm we began talking about possibly changing the plan and going out a bit my relaxed.
At the start of the race I got in about 3-4 rows back to keep myself from being tempted to go out to hard. About 2mins into the race I had already noticed my mouth was dry (much like indoor track) I tried to stay relaxed over the first mile in which i was 5:10 after the mile I attempted to move up which lasted about half a mile before everything began to tighten up. I came threw 2 in 10:31 and knew i needed to decide weather i was just gonna hang on or try to push harder, Turned out my legs already made that choice as I just tried to hang onto the pack in front of me the last mile felt like it took forever and by the time we hit 3m I had no want to try and muster a kick. Overall I am ok with how the race went I didn't go out over my head just struggled with the heat and humidity like most did.
