The thing I will remember most about the 2012 OSCR 50K is that for the first time I actually “paced’ myself the results were unexpected. I thought I would post the fastest personal time ever. Instead I was a half an hour slower then when I went out and “blew up” half way through he race. So kiddies, it pays off to go out hard and get wasted. Then coast in. It is way faster then “pacing” oneself.
The one good thing to come out of “pacing” is that I started and finished feeling fresh. So yea, I guess it is good to feel good and enjoy yourself in races … if you want to go slow. I say go all out and destroy it.
